were seated. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SYNOD STAFF STRUCTURE 

(See 1971 Proceedings, pp. 136-143) 

Mr. Joe Bookout, chairman of the committee which studied the synod staff 
structure, and a member of the Executive Board, presented the report with its 
reccmmendaticns. Copies of the report were distributed through the convention 
packets. 

Mr. Bookout said that the report was put on notice at the 1971 convention 
and that it had been discussed at district meetings, and that it was before the 
convention for action. 

Mr. Bookout reported that the committee had drawn conclusions from its 
free study on the chief functions and purpose of the synod, outlined in order of 
priority in the report, and gave reasons for the recommendations. 

He said that the implementing amendments allowed for a more flexible and 
viable structure of the synod staff with its recommended team ministry. 

Dr. Whittecar added that the approval of recommendations did not amend 
the constitution, but indicated the intent of the convention to do so. 

Mr. Bookout presented the recommendations which were considered seriatim 
as follows: 

1. That the constitution of the North Carolina Synod be amended to the 
effect that the only officer, elected by the synod in convention, be the president. 
ADOPTED. 

2. That the Executive Board elect Administrative Assistants in the number 
authorized by the synod in convention from nominations presented by the 
president. ADOPTED. 

3. That the Executive Board be given the responsibility of electing a 
Secretary and a Treasurer of the synod, the Secretary and Treasurer to be 
elected either from among the Administrative Assistants or from among its 
own members. ADOPTED. 



54 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

4. That amendments to the constitution be introduced to the synod in 
convention relative to the office of the Secretary and Treasurer: 

A. That an amendment be introduced to change the method of election 
of the Secretary and upon approval by the convention of synod in 
1972 that a position be created for an Administrative Assistant. 

B That an amendment be introduced to change the method of election 
of the Treasurer upon completion of the present term of office of 
the Treasurer or upon a vacancy in the office, whichever occurs first. 
(The President noted that this had been done at the 1971 Convention.) 

5. That the present office of Secretary of Christian Education be changed 
to that of an Administrative Assistant with the duties now covered by this 
position being assumed by one of the team of Administrative Assistants. 

Dr. Voigt R. Cromer offered an amendment striking all wording after 
"Christian Education" and adding the words "be discontinued," so that it 
would read: 

5. That the present office of Christian Education be discontinued. 
Dr. Cromer said that the amendment would be more in line with a team 
ministry. 

The amendment was ADOPTED. 

6. That the title of Assistant to the President be designated an Admin- 
istrative Assistant. ADOPTED. 

7. That a fourth Administrative Assistant be authorized to assist in the 
performance of the functions of the synod work. ADOPTED.

being elected from each of the six districts and with six members being elected 
at large, with the additional provision that at least three of the at large mem- 
bers must be laymen. 

A number of questions were raised by Pastor K. Y. Huddle and Dr. J. A. 
Keisler, Jr. relative to district representation on the Executive Boad. 

Notices of certain amendments were proposed in case of adoption which 
answered the questions. 

Recommendation 8 was put to a vote. ADOPTED.

Administrative Assistants shall expire concurrently with that of the President." 

The Rev. Robert Beard offered an amendment as 9a as follows: 

That this amendment shall become effective at the first meeting of the 
executive board subsequent to the convention of synod in 1973. 

A division was called. The vote was 141 for, and 148 against.

serving on the Executive Board at the time of the adoption of this amendment 
shall continue to serve until their terms of office expire and shall be eligible 
for re-election if they would have been eligible under this section prior to 
amendment." 

Mr. Samuel Behrends offered an amendment to change the period immed- 
iately following the word "times" to a comma (,) and by inserting after the 
comma the following: 

"but the existence of a vacancy from any district or districts shall not of 
itself deprive the Board of authority to take any action which it might other- 
wise take." ADOPTED. 



56 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The Rev. Robert Beard offered an amendment immediately following the 
one just adopted, as follows: 

"If a member of the Executive Board moves from the geographical bounds 

of the district he represents, his position shall be declared vacant as of the 

date of his removal, and en ad interim appointment shall be made by the 
Executive Board. ADOPTED. 

The amendment was adopted as amended, which reads as follows: 

"There shall be an executive board of the synod consisting of the President 
end eighteen (18) members elected by the synod — with eight (8) ministers 
and ten (10) laymen. At least one minister and one layman from the territory 
of each District of the Synod shall serve on the board at all times, but the 
existence of a vacancy from any district or districts shall not of itself deprive 
the Board of cuthority to take any action which it might otherwise take. If 
a member of the Executive Board moves from the geographical bounds of the 
district he represents, his position shall be declared vacant as of the date of 
his removal, and an ad interim appointment shall be made by the Executive 
Board . . . 

Constitutional amendments numbered 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 were 
carried over as unfinished business. (See p. 198) 

By unanimous consent, the time of the morning session was extended 15 
minutes, to 12:15. 

Rule of Procedure re. Executive Board Elections — Dr. John Yost, Jr., ex- 
plained the chart showing procedure for Executive Board elections, and then 
presented the recommendation adopted by the Executive Board: 

"To facilitate the election of members of the Executive Board a schedule 
shall be presented that indicates the number of places occupied by the present 
members of the board, clergy and laymen, by districts and at-large as well as 
the places to be filled by clergymen or laymen, by districts or at-large. As 
persons are elected by majority vote, their names shall be filled into appropriate 
open places on the schedule. Should a person receive a majority vote for whom 
there is no appropriate open place, he shall be declared ineligible to serve and 
the election shall be continued until an eligible person is elected. In the event 
that two persons are elected and there is only one appropriate open place for 
their ncmes to be entered, the person elected with the largest number of 
votes shall be given the place and the other declared ineligible to serve; or in 
the case of a tie vote, an additional ballot shall be taken to break the tie. 
ADOPTED. 

President Whittecar then added the following: 

That the first two clergy and first four laymen elected to eligible positions 
be given three-year terms, the next clergyman and layman two-year terms, and 
the next clergyman and layman one-year terms. ADOPTED. 

Report of Committee to study nominations from the floor — The Rev. Frank 
C. Perry presented the report of the Committee to study nominations from the 
floor authorized at the 1971 convention (See 1971 Proceedings, p. 218). 

"WHEREAS, we hove consumed 7 % of the convention's scheduled 17 hours 
of agenda time in making nominations from the floor, and 

"WHEREAS, nominations were invalid if not handed in writing, even though 
acknowledged by the chair, and 

"WHEREAS, the democratic process of making nominations from the floor 
is preserved by nominations in writing being handed in during the first hour 
of the convention, collected by the nomination committee staff and then read 
to the convention by the president, and 

"WHEREAS, considerable time of the convention could thus be salvaged, 
and 

"WHEREAS, there are other surmountable problems which can be solved, 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 57 



"THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the President appoint a select com- 
mittee of three lay persons and two pastors to study the convention procedures 
in making nominations from the floor, specifically for the purpose of shortening 
the amount of time consumed." ADOPTED. 

The special committee appointed by the President to study the matter of 
expediting the method of making nominations from the floor, which committee 
was authorized by action at the 1971 Convention, met and makes this report. 

The committee considered various ways in which the procedure of making 
nominations from the floor couid be speeded up. The committee was con- 
fronted with the fact that the Constitution of the Synod provides that addit.onal 
nominations may be made from the floor following the report of the Nomin- 
ating Committee. In order to eliminate this procedure and provide that nomin- 
ations be made before the convening of the Convention, it would be necessary 
to first amend the Constitution. After studying the Constitution and Robert's 
Rules of Order, the committee concluded that it is not required that nomin- 
ations be made orally from the floor and that constitutional provisions could 
be complied with if delegates were given an opportunity to submit nominations 
prior to the closing of nominations and the preparation of the first ballot. 

The committee suggests that in lieu of making oral nominations from the 
floor, each convention delegate be given a nomination blank which can be 
used in making nominations for the various positions to be filled, such blank 
to contain the necessary information required on the ballot and such blank to 
be signed by the delegate submitting the nomination. These blanks will then 
be turned in to the Nominating Committee at a designated place by a certain 
time and shall be accepted as nominations from the floor. The committee 
recommends that the following be adopted as a Rule of Procedure for use in 
making nominations from the floor at the 1972 Convention: 

"Delegates shall make nominations from the floor as provided in the con- 
stitution by the use of nominating blanks, which blanks shall be furnished by 
the Nominating Committee. The blanks shall contain space so that the delegate 
may indicate the position for which the nomination is made, the name of the 
nominee, and such other information as is required by the protocol of the 
Convention. The blanks shall also provide a place for the delegate to sign his 
name, and, in the case of lay delegates, a place to indicate which congre- 
gation he represents. Nomination blanks shall be submitted to the Nominating 
Committee at such place or places as are designated by its chairman by 60 
minutes after the closing of the Session at which the Nominating Committee 
makes its report. All nominations must be on the blank furnished by the Nom- 
inating Committee, must be signed by the delegate making the nomination, 
and must be turned in prior to the designated time. Nominations that do not 
meet these requirements or are of persons who might be ineligible for the 
position for which the nomination is presented shall be void and shall not be 
included on the bcllot. This Rule cf Procedure shall be for the 1972 Convention 
only. — B. S. Brown, Jr., Harry Faggart, Jr., Harry Fesperman, Vernon A. Frick, 
Paul R. Gerschwitz." ADOPTED. 

Nominations 

The Committee on Nominations met February 5, 1972 at the Church House 
for the purpose of compiling a list of nominees for the Executive Board of synod 
and all the other various boards of trustees of the institutions owned and oper- 
ated by the North Carolina Synod of the L.C.A. At the time of the election 
nominations may be made from the floor of the synod convention, and any such 
nominations will be added appropriately to the official list of nominations from 
the committee. By action of synod, nominations from the floor must be accom- 
panied by the following information which must be submitted on nomination 
blanks included in the convention packets: name and address of nominee, dist- 
rict, service in the synod and to the church at large, and occupation (if a 
layman).

On Reports of Officers and Staff 

The report was presented by Pastor Carl L. Ritchie, chairman, as follows: 

The Committee on Reports of Officers and Staff has reviewed the reports 
submitted to the convention by the President, Assistant to the President, Sec- 
retary, Treasurer and the Secretary of Christian Education. We find that they 
have discharged faithfully the many responsibilities of their office. 

We join Dr. Whittecar in his praise of the synod officers and -staff. Their 
devotion to the church and to each other exemplifies the fellowship of God's 
People. 



62 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

We take special note of the culmination of 19 years of continuous service 
in twenty conventions as Secretary of the Synod by Dr. Wilford Lyerly and give 
thanks to God for his faithful service. Also, the synod has been blessed by the 
ministry of Miss Mary Ann Moller, Youth Staffer, who completes her work 
in June. 

Along with President Whittecar we rejoice at the evidences of church re- 
newal amidst the tensions between change and constancy in our society. Fur- 
ther, we give thanks that a long and challenging work at Atlantic Beach has 
borne fruit in the organization of Shepherd of the Sea on June 25, 1971. Too 
late for printing in the bulletin of reports is the organization of Prince of 
Peace, Greensboro, on April 30, 1972. Both congregations have been received 
at this convention. 

We recommend that: 

1. The recommendations of the Secretary on page 88 be adopted. 

2. Each officer and staff member be recognized in connection with his 
report and be given time for comment. 

3. This report be adopted by a rising vote of the convention as an ex- 
pression of appreciation for the officers and staff in their continued good work 
in 1971. 

Rev. Carl Ritchie, Chr. Carl Litaker 

Rev. Larry Campbell Billy Poteat 

Rev. Louis Rogers Dr. James Unglaube 

It was pointed out that the material covered by the report are pages 9-57 
of the Bulletin of Reports (pp. 62-114 of these minutes). 

Recommendation 1. ADOPTED. 

This included recommendations one and two of the Secretary's Report 

fp. 88). 

In connection with Recommendation 1, Secretary Lyerly presented the of- 
ficial copy of the 1971 Proceedings signed by both the President and Secretary. 

Recommendation 2. ADOPTED. 

Each of the officers and staff was given the privilege of the convention 
floor to report on the activities of his office. 

President George R. Whittecar, Assistant to the President Ernest Miserv 
heimer, and Secretary Wilford Lyerly, each spoke to the convention at this time. 

The remainder of the report was carried over as unfinished business. (See 
p. 120) 

Report of the President 

Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and our Lord Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

Change is the order of the day. We are in the midst of a social revolution 
that is characterized by accelerating change in value systems, social mores, and 
institutional structures. The church and its members are caught up in it, along 
with everyone else. 

As a result, tensions frequently develop in the lives of individual church 
members as well as congregations. Many are greatly disturbed and threatened 
by the changes they see taking place, while others become excited and encour- 
aged by the same changes. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 63 



There seems to be a continual strain between the forces of change and 
elements in our lives that remain constant. We believe that God is eternal and 
His word is true regardless of changes that occur in the social order. On the 
other hand, ways of communicating the word, patterns of worship, or orders 
for governing the church can and should be changed from time to time. Thi> 
church, under the guidance of God, has withstood shocks in the past, and will 
surely do so in every generation as its people stand firm in their faith, even 
though necessary changes are made in their way of life. 

Congregations in this synod have felt some of the tensions between con- 
stancy and change. A number have felt the good results of change in their 
praictice of admitting youth to the Lord's Supper after instruction but before 
confirmation. Modes of worship have changed for the good in many of our con- 
gregations with a modercte use of non-traditional styles of music and devotional 
patterns. Experimentation with the new Inter-Lutheran Commission on Worship 
liturgy for the Lord's Supper and other rites has opened the door to refreshing 
experiences in congregational worship. Efforts are continually being made by 
pastors and lay leaders to find more meaningful ways to approach our concerns 
for education, evangelism, and stewardship. 

We rejoice in such evidence that are appearing in our congregational life 
and look for them to spread to others among us who might be emboldened to 
venture in new patterns. 

I trust that renewal may be increasingly meaningful to all of us in the North 
Carolina Synod as we work through the tensions between constancy and change 
that frequently disturb us, but which can also open the way to newness of life. 

In this convention we shall see evidences of responsible action on the part 
of officers, committees, boards and institutions, and persons who have been given 
special assignments. I am always mindful of the large numbers of persons who 
are enlisted in various aspects of our life on a voluntary basis. The time and 
counsel of each in performing his assigned task is appreciated. 

I point all of our ministers and congregations to the days that are ahead 
with their exciting opportunities for witness to the gospel. The doors are wide 
open for the bold proclamation of the gospel in America and across the world. 
We need only to be wise enough to seize the opportunity and generous enough 
to provide the means to make our influence felt in the lives of men. There is 
a new day ahead for us all. 

APPRECIATION 

I want to thank the pastors of our congregations and all ministers of the 
synod, together with the vast numbers of the members of our congregations who 
have participated in one way or another in the life of the church, each adding 
his part to the total witness of our faith that we have been able to make. Especial- 
ly do I express my own appreciation and the thanks of us all to those who have 
served as officers and staff of the synod, particularly the Rev. J. Wilford Lyerly, 
D.D., secretary of synod; Charles S. Heilig, treasurer; Rev. Ernest L. Misenheimer, 
D.D., cssistant to the president; Rev. Terry A. Agner, secretary of Christian edu- 
cation, Mrs. O. L. Casey, receptionist, secretary to the President and manager of 
the film library; Mrs. Charles Roberts, secretary to Dr. Lyerly and Pastor Agner; 
Mrs. E. O. Casper, secretary to Dr. Misenheimer; Mrs. Gray Hampton, bookkeeper 
and secretary to Treasurer Heilig, and Mrs. P. B. Brown, housekeeper. Each has 
served with grace and efficiency in his or her assigned capacity. The preserce 
during most of the year of Miss Mary Ann Moller, youth staffer assigned by the 
LCA Commission on Youth Ministry, has been a blessing to us all and especially 
to the young people of our congregations. We thank her for her contribution to 
the North Carolina Synod. 

OUR CONVENTION CITY 

We meet for this convention for the first time in the city of Durham where 
we are being "hosted" by four congregations, St. Paul, Christ, and Christus 
Victor, Durham, and Holy Trinity, Chapel Hill. Our ministry in this area is the 
result of mission activity dating back to the early 1920's in Durham and has 
been identified closely with institutions in the area. 



64 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

St. Paul, Durham, the Rev. Harry Robinson, pastor, is our "mother church" 
in the community. It was organized in 1923 by the Rev. J. L. Thornburg and 
President J. L. Morgan. For a number of years it was the locale of the Lutheran 
ministry to students at Duke University, and its pastors assisted by graduate stu- 
dents at Duke and U.N.C. also conducted a campus ministry at Chapel Hill. 
The Rev. Henry Schroder was pastor from 1931 to 1963. Pastor Robinson has 
served since 1963. A beautiful modern church was erected in 1968. 

Holy Trinity, Chape! Kiil, the Rev. Frank Perry, pastor, was organized in 1946 
by Dr. D. P. Rudisill and President J. L. Morgan. The building was erected as a 
synodical project with gifts being received from congregations and individuals 
throughout the synod. Since that time the ministry at Holy Trinity has been 
directed to campus as well as to community. 

Christ, Durham, Rev. John Derrick, pastor, was established in 1958 by the 
U.L.C.A. Board of American Missions, end Christus Victor, Durham, the Rev. 
Floyd Sides, pastor, located near the Research Triangle Park, was established 
by the L.C.A. Bocrd of American Missions in 1967. 

In 1963, St. Paul's church council petitioned the President of the Synod 
for assistance in meeting the increasing demands for ministry to Lutherans and 
others drawn to the community for the services of hospitals in the area. This 
resulted in the establishment in 1965 of the Lutheran Institutional Chaplaincy. 
This was done by the synod with the assistance of the L.C.A. Board of Social 
Ministry. The Rev. J. White Iddings, D.D., has been the chaplain since the 
beginning of this program. However, since 1968 the responsibility has been 
shared by the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod and their chaplain, the Rev. 
Fred Stemke. In 1970, the Rev. Claude V. Deal, Jr., was extended a call by 
the synod to serve as a chaplain at A<Aemorial Hospital, Chapel Hill. 

The development of the campus ministry at Durham and Chapel Hill has 
followed the growth of the educational institutions in those communities. We 
now participate in the Central North Carolina Campus ministry which ministers 
primarily at UNC-C.H., Duke, UNC-Greensboro, A&T Greensboro, and other 
institutions in the immediate area. The Rev. Stanford Hall is under call to this 
ministry and a lay assistant, Miss Sharon Beckhart, shares it with primary 
responsibility at Greensboro. 

Durham is also the headquarters city for the North Carolina Council of 
Churches. 

The presence of an unusually large number of institutions of learning, 
healing, research, and correction in and near Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, 
Butner, and the Research Triangle, as well as an ever growing population in 
the area, make this locality a place of increasing importance for our Lutheran 
ministry. It is significant that we meet at Durham at this time.

same church on January 27, 1972. The last item on the annual meeting's 
agenda was the presentation of the following resolution by Pastor J. A. Harb- 



mson: 



RESOLUTION 



WHEREAS, a pastor is a man before he is a pastor and should be allowed 
the prerogative of exercising his priesthood as an individual as he understands 
it in the eyes of God, even while he discharges his social responsibility as a 
citizen of the community alongside his pastoral duties to the members of his 
congregation; and 

WHEREAS, a married pastor's duty to his wife and/or children should be 
regarded as real and necessary apart from his duties as a pastor; and 

WHEREAS, it is proper and good that a pastor must make the choice of 
his earthly possessions (such as clothing, furniture, style and model of auto- 
mobile, etc.) according to his personal budget ... all of which, even while it 
allows him the prerogative he needs in such matters, may in fact require him 
to exercise sensible judgment in his choices as a man; and 

WHEREAS, there is the probability that some pastors would appreciate and 
prefer the privilege of selecting living accommodations for himself and/or his 
family which may result in a healthier situation for both pastor and congregation; 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Southern District of the 
North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America go on record, by the 
adoption of this resolution, favoring a procedure which would request congre- 
gations which ore not now providing a housing allowance for their pastor, or 
pastors, to investigate the possibility of such a policy in the life of their con- 
gregation in lieu of providing a porsonoge, allowing therefore wherever possible, 
the prerogative or choice for their pastor or pastors in this matter. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, should this resolution be adopted, that the 
Secretary of the Southern District be instructed to transmit this action to the 
North Carolina Synod, according to whatever procedure is necessary and re- 
quired to bring this resolution before the delegates to the Annual Convention 
of the North Carolina Synod for vote at the convention scheduled to be held 
in Durham, North Carolina in Moy of 1972. 

(The above resolution was adopted by the Southern District on October 
15, 1971.)

80 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Report of the Assistant to the President 

In the North Carolina Synod, nineteen hundred and seventy-one might be 
called a year of retreats so we could advance, a year of evangelism missions 
to broaden our outreach, a year of social ministry in an effort to rally support 
for justice and social change, a year of stewardship to provide resources for 
the mission of the church. As Assistant to the President, it's good to have had 
a part in helping to make some of these things happen. 

I wish to express my appreciation to the following for the support and team 
work which have made the responsibilities of my office a joy instead of a 
burden: the President of Synod, the Secretary of Synod, the Treasurer of Synod, 
the Secretary of Christian Education, the Executive Board, Operational Com- 
mittee Chairmen and members in Social Ministry, Stewardship, and Evangelism, 
Secretarial Staff at the Church House. 

In giving a report on my activities since the last convention of synod I 
will outline my activities as Assistant to the President under the following eight

ERNEST L. MISENHEIMER 
Assistant to the President 



Report of the Secretary 

I begin my report with a crescendo of gratitude and praise to our Lord Jesus 
Christ, to pastors and congregations of the North Carolina Synod, to officers 
and staff, and to all with whom I have been associated in my office as secretary, 
for the privileges of serving, for the opportunities of witnessing, and for the 
blessing of working with you in the synod. I give a BIG salute to the secretaries 
of the Church House, especially my own secretary, Mrs. Jenny Roberts, for their 
efficient and effective services. The report is the very channel which I need to 
convey these greetings and feelings to the members of the synod, since my 
resignation as fulltime secretary became effective January 1, 1972. Since that 
time, 1 have been serving as part-time secretary upon request and action of 
the Executive Board, serving between two end three days each week in the 
Salisbury office, in addition to my regular duties as pastor of our Lutheran 
Mission in Mount Airy. 

Therefore, my report includes a part of the convention year as full-time 
and since January 1 as part-time secretary of the synod. 

And now, for an accounting of my stewardship. I have served and continue 
to serve as recording officer of the synod , Executive Board, Committee of Deans, 
and the Committee on Historical Work, an ex-officio member of the Committee 
on Publications and Publicity, an advisory member of the Committee on Amer- 
ican Missions and a member of its Executive Committee. I also serve as statis- 
tician, necrologist, archivist and director of the news bureau. I also served as 
vice pastor of St. Andrew, Mount Airy, until the first of the year when I 
became full-time pastor. I have also given assistance to the Committee on Con- 
tinuing Education for Ministers. I serve on two sub-committees of the Executive 
Board, Church House Property and Personnel and Conventions. 

Below is a catalogue of activities in the respective areas of assignment: 

MINUTES 

1. Distributed 5,000 copies of the 1971 Proceedings to pastors, lay dele- 
gates, and congregations of synod on the basis of previous requests approxi- 
mating 10% of active confirmed members, to LCA offices, synods, libraries of 
LCA colleges and seminaries, including other N. C. college and university librar- 
ies, the Library of Congress and the State Library, according to a mailing list 
from the office of the LCA secretary. 

2. Distributed six hundred and fifty copies of the Pre-Convention Bulletin 
to clerical and lay delegates prior to this convention. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 83 

3. Prepared and distributed minutes of Executive Board meetings to board 
members and LCA office, and indexed them for ready reference. A complete 
index is maintained for the use of all synodical offices. A composite report of 
the Executive Board was prepared for synod use. 

4. Distributed minutes of the Committees of District Deans and Historical 
Work which were prepared and distributed to committee members. 

SECRETARIAL FUNCTIONS 

In addition to the functions as set forth above, I have 

1. Maintained an up-to-date roll of congregations and ministers. 

2. Kept a calendar of synodical events and functions. 

3. Issued certificates of transfer for ministers called to other synods, and 
entered pastors transferred to N. C. Synod upon the ministerial roll. 

4. Issued calls tc special service. 

5. Certified appointments and elections, communicated board and synod- 
ical actions to parties concerned, and attested all legal documents. 

6. Conducted a pre-conventicn registration as specified by the constitution. 

7. Assisted convention host with preparation of this convention. 

STATISTICS 

"Let there be a numbering of the people". — Exodus 1:2 

There has been a numbering of the people of the N. C. Synod through the 
parochial report from every congregation of the synod. While the Book of Num- 
bers is not the only book in the Bible, it is a very important book in the Bible. 
While statistics do not tell the whole story, they do tell an important part of 
the story, for they are reflective and revealing of much that goes on in parish 
development and life. Strange nough, statistics can become excitingly and glow- 
ingly alive, for back of every number is a name, back of every figure is a face, 
back of every contribution is a contributor, back of every statistic is a soul, and 
back of every penny is a person. And too, statistics penetrate the life of the 
church at so many strategic points. They constitute a big and significant section 
of the Minutes of Synod and provide the raw material for synod and church 
wide use. 

NOW LET US LOOK AT THE STATISTICS 

The 1971 statistics show both gains and losses. The various categories of 
membership follow: 

Child Members — 1,976 gains and 2,305 losses, including 1,167 child member. 

confirmed, a loss of 404 reported as "other losses". Total child membership 

decreased from 19,147 to 18,818. 
Confirmed Members — 3,510 gains and 3,010 losses, a gain of 500, a slight 

drop from last year (718). Total confirmed membership increased from 

58,018 to 58,518. 
Baptized Membership — 5,486 gains and 5,315 losses, a gain of 171. Total 

baptized membership increased from 77,165 to 77,336. 
Active Roll of Confirmed Members — Total membership decreased from 46,269 

to 45,582, a decrease of 687, a loss over the previous year which showed 

a gain of 195. 
Communing Membership — Total membership increased from 42,295 to 42,357, 

a gain of 62. 
Congregations — As of December 31, 1971, there were 205 congregations on 

the roll of synod, including two non-functioning congregations, Melanch- 

thon, Liberty, and St. Matthew, Mocksville. Of these congregations, 19 are 

in cities of 100,000 or more; 28 in cities from 25,000 to 99,999; 38 are 

in cities from 10,000 to 24,999; 35 in cities from 2,500 to 9,999; and 

85 are in towns and communities of less than 10,000. 



84 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Ministers — As of December 31, 1971, there were 268 ministers on the roll of 
syond in the following categories; 180 parish pastors; 23 non-parish pastors 
(general workers and professors); 7 chaplains (4 military and 3 institutional); 
3 missionaries; 2 mission developers; 46 retired; and 7 awaiting call. 

Parish Education — Sunday Church School enrollment dropped from 38,399 to 
37,019, a loss of 1,380 (-3%). In other areas of parish education, 168 
vacation church schools were held with a pupil enrollment of 10,960, a 
slight drop from the previous year. There were 53 weekday church schools 
held with a pupil attendance of 2,342. Congregations reported that 3,878 
had taken catechetical instruction, including 780 adults, and that 645 were 
enrolled in the school of religion. 

Finances — Total giving amounted to $7,403,998, compared to $7,138,096 for 
1970, an increase of $265,902 (3.7%) over 1970. Of the $7,403,998 
given to all causes, 54% was given to current operating expenses; 24% 
to other than regular operating expenses; 16% apportioned benevolences; 
and 6% to other benevolences. Apportioned benevolence increased $31,495 
(2.7%) over the previous year, and other benevolences were down $44,310 
over 1970. Total assets are $48,614,053. 

Gains and Losses — Of synod's 205 congregations, 117 reported gains in mem- 
bership ranging from 1% to 36%, while 81 reported losses. Five held their 
own. There are also two defunct churches. 

A FEW OBSERVATIONS 

1. Decline in child members — Child membership dropped from 19,147 to 
18,818, a loss of 329. However, 404 were reported as "other losses". The 
drop in child members reflects the declining birthrate in our country. A 
decade ago children between birth and age four constituted 1 1 percent of 
the population. Today this age group comprises only 9 percent of the pop- 
ulation. Add to this that the birthrate among Lutherans is declining some- 
what faster than the average and the difficulty in achieving growth in 
numbers in parish education is compounded. At present that same age group 
in the LCA comprises only 6 and one-half percent of the total membership. 

2. The high rate of mobility — The greatest gains and losses in membership 
are by transfer of members which means that people are on the move which 
is characteristic of our day. Of the synod's 5,486 gains in membership, 2,617 
were by transfer. Of the 5,318 losses, 2,249 were by transfer. 

3. Our Continuing oncern — Congregations are no longer padding their church 
rolls but pruning them. Since the merger of the Lutheran Church in Amer- 
ica, congregations have become more realistic in reporting members. There 
were 1,302 reported under "other losses". There have been 11,854 "other 
losses" reported since 1962. An increasing number of congregations are 
reporting the same number of confirmed members as the number on the 
active roll of confirmed members. This means that an increasing number 
are being placed on the inactive roll. Lest we forget those who have wand- 
ered from the fold, the constitution reminds us "that they shall remain 
within the continuing concern of the congregation and shall be given con- 
scientious pastoral care". 

4. Locking the Back Door — It is obvious that we have left the back door of 
the church unlocked. Of the 500 gains in confirmed membership last year, 
there was a decrease of 687 on the active roll of confirmed members, which 
means that an increasing number of our people are slipping out the back 
door. Let us open wide the front door of the church and lock the back door 
so that more of our people will become properly assimilated in the life of 
the church. 

5. Some Significant Gains — With no attempt to discriminate in membership 
gains, it is interesting and helpful to note what congregations have exper- 
ienced the highest percentage of membership growth. In this age of great 
mobility some congregations have to work hard just to break even. But 
congregations achieving high membership gains and goals are deserving of 
special recognition. Again, we list the honor roll of congregations reporting 
a net gain of 10% or more in baptized membership: 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 85 

St. Mark, Lumberton — 36% (32) Morning Star, Matthews — 12% (18) 

Advent, Charlotte — 28% (26) Our Saviour, Welcome — 12% (12) 

Lebanon, Lexington — 26% (11) St. Paul, Hamlet — 12% (31) 

Holy Cross, Mocksville — 21% (22) Ebenezer, China Grove — 11% (44) 

Incarnation, Charlotte — 19% (95) Ascension, Wilson — 10% (17) 

Christ the King, Cary — 18% (63) Christus Victor, Durham — 10% (14) 
Lutheran Chapel, Gastonia — 10% (46) 

Other congregations reporting net gains in baptized membership are listed 
in the following percentage categories: 

Churches with losses — 81 
Churches which remained the same — 5 

9%— 3 
8%— 2 
7%— 9 
6%— 3 
5%— 4 
4% — 10 
3% — 17 
2% — 15 
1 %— 23 
Less than 1 % — 18

ARCHIVES 

Since the synodical archives have been put in good order, the office is able 
to meet an increasing number of requests for biographical data, to establish birth 
and bcptismal dates for social security purposes, and to assist those engaged 
in research and study. 

A master list of archival contents eppears in the 1968 Proceedings, pp. 
93-95. Since then, a number of valuable additions have been made which ere 
acknowledged and listed each year in the convention bulletin and minutes. 

Four files are maintained for each of the congregations of synod; the card 
index file, listing materials which are availcble; a constitutional file, containing 
a copy of the congregation's constitution and cmendments; a correspondence 
file which the President of Synod maintains: and an historical data file con- 
taining histories, bulletins, and newspaper clippings of events and functions in 
the life of the congregation. Each congregation is encouraged to keep this file 
up to date bv sending copies of bulletins of historical occasions, year books, and 
newspaper clippings. 

Another important file is the biographical data of ministers. Each minister 
is urged to keep his file up to date. A picture which could be spared for syn- 
odical use would complete the file. 

Church records are among the most valuable collection in the archives, and 
they become more valuable with the passing of time. Congregations that have 
not deposited their old records in the archives are encouraged to do so for safe 
keeping and for use by the synod. 

Our office has been responsible for the sale of synod's publications, namely, 
History of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina, the Supplement, and Life 
Sketches of Lutheran Ministers. 

Additions were made to the archives during the year as follows: 

1. Minutes of the Church Council of Friedens, Gibsonville, 1921-1949; 

2. History of Old Zicn Church, by William Arter Zundel; 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 87 

American Lutheran Survey, by Gilbert P. Voigt; 

Lutheran World Almanac, 1921-29; 

Minutes of Rowan County Lutheran Ministerial Association, 1956-1970; 

Minutes of N. C. Synod and other LCA synods; 

Minutes of boards and committees of the synod; 

Anniversary booklets, year books, including membership rolls, and bulletin 

of historical events; 

Newspaper articles of biographical and historical significance; 

A Swedish Bible given by Pastor John E. Nelson. 

NECROLOGY 



"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord" — Revelation 14:13 
Death invaded the synod's ministerial camp and claimed the lives of Pastors 
Carroll Noah Yount and Robert Hugh Kepley. A memorial service will be held 
on Tuesday afternoon, May 9, at 1:30 p.m. 

Other Losses 

Death also invaded our synodical family and claimed the lives of 19 child 
and 578 adult members, making a total of 597. 

Robert Thomas Fuller, former pastor of the synod, demitted since 1961, died 
in California on March 7. Funeral services were held in Gastonia on March 11, 
conducted by the Rev. C. Peter Setzer. 

We extend to these bereaved families our sympathetic love and supporting 
prayers, commending them to the God of all comfort and grace, and assuring 
them that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. While we, of the synod, 
are touched by their death, we also rejoice in their victory through Christ. 

PUBLICITY 

Lines of communication have been kept open between the synod office and 
the news media. The communication gap is being bridged and narrowed by close 
contacts with those who are responsible for the news in North Carolina. News 
releases on synodical functions and events were sent to some 75 news media 
throughout the state. 

Monthly reports of ministerial changes were sent to the LCA secretary's 
office and for publication in The Lutheran. News releases on Executive Board 
actions, coming events, ministerial changes, and other related and pertinent 
matters were sent to Editor George Shuford for publication in the North Caro- 
lina Lutheran. 

Subscriptions to the North Carolina Lutheran and The Lutheran are sent 
gratis to 55 news media offices requesting them. News releases from the LCA 
Commission on Press, Radio, Television, are being sent to religion news editors 
in strategic areas where the news has a wide circulation. 

Our office maintains a file of biographical sketches and mats of synod's 
officers and staff which are available upon request. 

Pastors and congregations are encouraged to keep the news of their church 
in the public eye through their local news media. Only synodical news is re- 
leased from this office. A number of pastors are conducting regular church news 
programs over their local network which is most commendable and gratifying. 
Pastors and publicity chairmen would do well to lend encouragement to radio 
and TV stations to carry the Protestant Hour, Davey and Goliath specials, and 
other LCA produced and sponsored programs, and express appreciation when any 
of these programs are carried. 

A BIG salute to Editor George Shuford and Pastor Robert Kepley, chairman 
of the Committee on Publications and Publicity, for their faithful services in 
this significant and strategic area of synodical service.

WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary 



Report of Secretary of Christian Education 

As I look back over my appointment book to begin to recall what I have 
done over the past year and to determine the manner in which I should make 
my report to you, I first began by listing one hundred fifty-three mestings/events 
in which I had an active part during that period. Each was of the duration of 
not less than an hour nor more than two hundred fifty-two hours. Many were 
of half-day, day-long, or two-day duration. Almost every one required a period 
of preparation and/or a number of hours of follow-up. They ranged in nature 
from individual briefings of new (in this synod) Parish Educators to conducting 
a workshop in Youth Ministry at a district LCW meeting, from installing a 
pastor to preaching the sermon at a service of dedication for a new education 
building, from conducting he Evaluation Interview with a new church vocat- 
ions registrant to assisting a committee in its presentations to the New Pastors' 
Workshop, from co-leading a three-day Youth Ministry Leadership Event to 
speaking at a Sunday School teachers' Recognition Dinner, from hosting a 
pastors' retreat to helping a mission congregation's committee on Christian 
Education plan its educational ministry, from coordinating a camp-out on the 
Harnett County camp property to helping a congregation work through the 
process of determining its policy on confirmation and first communion. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 91 

How can I best report my activities to you? I could list them all as I did 
last year (pp. 94-98, 1971 Proceedings) — a method of doubtful value to me 
now, considering the space it took. A better way may be to report a summary 
of my activities by categories. 

Parish Education: Forty-eight meeting/events pertained to Parish Educat- 
ion. Meeting with the synodical committee and sub-committees, meeting with 
congregational committees, conducting and/or setting up workshops, serving on 
Lutheridge program committee, and meeting with individual parish educators 
are examples of these activities. 

Youth Ministry: Again, meeting with the synodical committee and sub- 
committees and counseling congregational youth and adults prevailed. Planning 
and training with the Youth Staffer, and conducting workshops are typical 
examples of the remainder of the twenty-nine meeting/events given to this area. 

Church Vocations: The number of meeting/events in this area — twenty 
— is not very representative of the time which my work in this area takes. 
Fifteen of this number are for interviews which in themselves are a minimum 
of one and one-half hours and which require an equal amount of time for 
write-up. The remaining number are for meetings of the committee, which 
also requires a great deal of correspondence and other preparation prior to 
each one. Each day requires some correspondence in this area. 

Church Camping: Examples of the nine meeting/events in this area in- 
clude not only meeting with the committee and sub-committees but participating 
in the planning of the pastors' retreats, assisting congregational groups in the 
planning of retreats, and co-hosting a camp-out for synod pastors and their 
families. 

Confirmation and First Communion: Listed in a separate category — ra- 
ther than as a part of Christian Education — because of the emphasis the 
church gave to this in 1970-71, the ten meeting/events in this area were pri- 
marily centered around the training of sixty-six district resource persons who in 
turn met with congregational leaders to help them determine a method for 
helping the members of their congregations understand and implement the 
recommendations. The remaining meeting/events were workshops and meetings 
which I personally conducted. Not listed were the numerous telephone calls and 
personal conferences centering around this concern. 

Official Acts: On behalf of the synod president I installed the Rev. Robert 
Young as pastor of Morning Star, Matthews on June 20, 1971. At the request 
of the officers of Ascension, Shelby, I preached the sermon at the service of 
dedication for a parish building on July 18, 1971. 

Miscellaneous Activities: Served on the planning and steering committee 
for FOCUS '71; served on the inter-synodical committee which produced the 
filmstrip WORDS; participated in the Area Evangelism Mission as a Missioner 
at Calvary, Concord, September 26-29, 1971; served as Contact Person for 
Mary Ann Moller, our Youth Staffer, helping her to develop her ministry and 
to assist in developing direction and support for Youth Ministry; participated 
in a Parish Renewal Seminar at the Loyola Retreat House, Morristown, New 
Jersey, February 20-25, 1972; preached thirteen sermons, including the home- 
coming sermon at Melanchthon, Liberty; attended with other synod staff the 
Parish Life Development presentation at Lutheran Theological Southern Sem- 
inary, February 28-March 1, 1972; produced twelve issues of CONTACT, a 
Youth Ministry-Parish Education newsletter which goes monthly to approximately 
1,000 persons in the congregations; publicized the summer Youth Ministry 
events; supervised the registration for the summer Youth Ministry events; se- 
cured the following films, filmstrips, tapes and records for the synodical multi- 
media library: CORA: Our Christian Commitment in Appalachia; The Daisy; 
The Jesus People; The Lord's Table; Joseph and His Technicolor Dreamcaat; 
Person to Person; Dream a Little . . . Dream a Lot; Who's George?; Officer

They May All Be One", "All I Have Is Yours", "Keep Them Safe", "Your 
Word Is Truth", "Your Love For Them", "That They Might Know You", "My 
Joy Fulfilled"; The Family of God. 

Youth Staffer: Significantly extending the synod's Youth Ministry has been 
the work of our Youth Staffer, Mary Ann Moller, of Hoquiom, Washington, who 
has been with the synod full-time since July 1, 1971. Mary Ann's summary of 
her activities follows: 

"As Youth Stcffer for North Carolina during the period, July, 1971 -July, 
1972, my assignment has been to "make Youth Ministry happen". In facilitating 
this process, I have assumed the roles of resource person, enabler, teacher, con- 
sultant, and workshop leader. 

"During this year I have worked with approximately 70 congregational 
groups from across the synod. My chief objective has been to help these con- 
gregational groups with Youth Ministry concepts, resources, skills in using re- 
sources, and in helping both youth and adults to understand Youth Ministry 
as contributing to the holistic nature of the church. Inter-congregationally, I 
have worked with pastors, youth, and adult workers with youth. Examples of 
these types of inter-congregational activities include: an Eastern District Youth 
Ministry Round Up with 38 youth and adult participants from five congregat- 
ions; two adviser workshops — the first a one-day event with 40 adults parti- 
cipating, and the second a week-end workshop with 50 adults in South Caro- 
lina; four week-end retreats with congregational groups. 

"A second area of responsibility has been the recruitment, training, and 
supervision of consultation teams for the synod. This has included quarterly 
meetings, a two-day workshop with the teams, and a week's training event 
along with a CYM staff person for new teams. 

"The final area of my work has been as staff person /advisor to the Syn- 
odical Committee on Youth Ministry. My responsibilities have been carried 
through at a Regional Youth Committee week-end workshop, working with 
clusters of congregations, supervising Convo '72 participants, encounter tapes 
on Youth Ministry, co-ordination of a summer training event for Junior High's, 
and participation in a Priority Retreat. 

"My hearty thanks to all of you for this opportunity to serve our Lord's 
Kingdom in such a meaningful and joyous way. 

In Celebration — 
MARY ANN MOLLER, 
Youth Staffer" 

We are most grateful for the commitment, competence, advocacy-for-youth, 
and energy which Mary Ann has brought to her work among us. These attrib- 
utes — with her exuberant and cooperative spirit — have brightened the lives 
not only of us here at the church house but of scores among whom she worked 
in the congregations. We shall miss Mary Ann as she leaves on June 30 and 
subsequently returns to Lewis and Clark College, Portland, Oregon, where she 
will complete her last term of undergraduate work. On July 23, David Fink, 
of Miramar, Florida, will begin a year's full-time work with the synod, replacing 
Mary Ann. 

The Comprehensive Approach: Recognizing that congregational implemen- 
tation of Christian Education and Youth Ministry — as well as other parish 
activities — will increasingly require coordinated planning for maximum effect- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 93 

fveness, my continuing education efforts, as well as those of the long-range 
planning of the committees on Youth Ministry and Parish Education, have been 
aimed particularly with congregations in mind which will need assistance in 
parish planning and renewal. As the synod in this convention determines for 
itself its structure, and as the church in Dallas in June and July sets the direction 
of its structure, more will be known about what can be done within this new 
structure in this much needed and often neglected approach to parish pro- 
gramming. 

A Final Word: I extend my thanks to my colleagues: the officers of synod; 
the assistant to the president; staff secretaries and bookkeeper; our Youth 
Staffer, Mary Ann Moller; committee members; LCA staff persons; workshop 
leaders; Skill Development Leaders; Consultation Team members; congregational 
committee members; and pastors. You have not only made my work possible 
but viable. To you and the Living Lord I am ever so grateful.

Report of the Treasurer 

1971 

The Treaurser's Office can report another busy and fruitful year. The activ- 
ities become more and more varied as our synodical program expands. The 
budget items end the committees increase in numbers and projects as the 
work of the Synod goes on. The interim reports of committees require greater 
portions of time and effort than ever before. 

We all rejoice that our congregations are supporting the Church in so many 
ways. A word of appreciation for the funds from Michael Peeler income has 
helped in so many ways. 

My appreciation goes to the many congregational treasurers for their dil- 
igent work throughout the year. Nearly all of them serve voluntarily. 

The following pages show our financial transactions and balances for the 
past year. Special care is exercised to condense the report as much as possible 
and at the same time furnish a permanent record of every transaction.

with that of the preceding year.

LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA M5 

Committee of Deans 

The Committee of Deans consists of the following district deans: 

The Rev. James C. Stirewalt, Central 

The Rev. John D. Mauney, Jr., Eastern 

The Rev. Frank C. Perry, Th.M., Northern 

The Rev. W. Leo Smith, S.T.M., Northwestern 

The Rev. J. A. Harbinson, S.T.M., Southern 

The Rev. Jack E. Smith, S.T.M., Southwestern 

The president and secretary of synod are its chairman and secretary re- 
spectively. 

Dates of the two meetings of the committee since the last convention of 
synod were July 20, 1971 and April 18, 1972. 

Constitutionally, the function of the committee is to advise and assist the 
president of synod in the discharge of his duties and to confer with him as to 
the needs of the church on the territory of the several districts; to review the 
ministerial roll annually and make appropriate recommendations to the synod 
regarding those ministers whose status is subject to reconsideration and action 
under the terms of the constitution and bylaws of the church; and to determine 
the dates and programs of the meetings of the districts , Article VII, Section 2, 
items 2, 3, and 4). 

1 . District Meetings, plans for 

The committee arranged for both the fall and spring district meetings. The 
fall meetings featured the Holy Communion Service with adaptations of the 
Communion Service recommended by the Inter-Lutheran Commission on Worship 
and an afternoon panel discussion on the proposed restructuring of the synod 
staff. 

Elections of operational committees were held at the fall meeting due to a 
prevailing amendment to the constitution making the fall meeting the annual 
meeting of the district. (See 1970 Pro., pp. 86, 114) 

Terms of operational committees which would have ordinarily expired in the 
spring of 1972 were shortened to expire with the fall meeting. 

The spring meetings featured the annual consultations. 

See Reports of the District Deans for details of the fall and spring meetings. 

Other related matters consisted of a presentation of youth ministry activ- 
ities by Miss Mary Ann Moller, youth staffer; a discussion of Confirmation and 
First Communion and the dean's role in the implementation process; and the 
promotion of the CONCERN appeal. 

2. Roll of Ministers, review of 

The committee reviewed the ministerial roll of the synod with reference to 
the status of those awaiting call in compliance with the rule of the church 
which reads: 

"Continuance on the ministerial roll of a minister awaiting call shall be 
reviewed by the synod at each regular convention up to the permitted limit of 
three years. Extension of one year at a time shall require a majority vote." 
(LCA By-Laws, Section II, Item 12) 

The committee will submit its recommendations concerning those who are 
awaiting call and those who are applying for awaiting call following its April 
18, 1972 meeting. 

RECOMMENDATION 

That the following be continued on the roll of awaiting call: 

First Year: David L. Lohr, Corley R. Lineberger, Robert L. Young, Thomas 
Renninger. 

Second Year: David M. Rhoads. 

WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary 



116 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The Rev. John D. Mauney, Jr., reported for the district deans. He presented 
the recommendations relating to ministers awaiting call: 

That the following be continued on the roll of awaiting call: 
First Year — David L. Lohr, Corley R. Lineberger, Robert L. Young, and Thomas 
Renninger. 

Second Year — David M. Rhoads. 
ADOPTED. 

In connection with the committee's report, the Rev. J. A. Harbinson, dean 
of the Southern district, presented the recommendation adopted by the Southern 
District as follows: 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Southern District of the 
North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America go on record, by 
the adoption of this resolution, fcvoring a procedure which would request con- 
gregations which are not now providing a housing allowance for their pastor, 
or pastors, to investigate the possibility of such a policy in the life of their 
congregation in lieu of providing a parsonage, allowing therefore wherever 
possible, the prerogative or choice for their pastor or pastors in this matter. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, should this resolution be adopted, that the 
Secretary of the Southern District be instructed to transmit this action to the 
North Carolina Synod, according to whatever procedure is necessary and re- 
quired to bring this resolution before the delegates to the Annual Convention 
of the North Carolina Synod for vote at the convention scheduled to be held 
in Durham, North Carolina in May of 1972. 

(The above resolution was adopted by the Southern District on October 15, 
1971). 

Dr. J. A. Keisler, Jr. moved that the resolution be referred to the committee 
on Reference end Counsel. NOT ADOPTED. 

Dean Harbinson explained that this in no sense obligated any congregation 
but called for investigating the possibility of providing housing allowance in 
lieu of parsonage. 

The resolution was put to a vote. ADOPTED. 



Examining Committee 



The Rev. C. Marion Starr, chairmen, presented the following report: 

The role of the Examining Committee has grown across the years from one 
of a final review of candidates for ordination to one of entrance at a much 
earlier date and at a more personal point in the life of potential candidates. 
While looking specifically at qualifications of men for the ministry in the light 
of the guidelines for acceptance into and continuation in the ministry is main- 
tained as a prime function, it is no longer viewed as a matter of a single inter- 
view. Evidence of the fact is the three contacts made with seminary senior 
during the 1971-1972 academic year. In October representatives of the com- 
mittee visited the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary and outlined to the 
students their specific involvements in the procedures to be followed. On De- 
cember 28 committee members, students and their wives met informally to 
become better acquainted. Written examinations, prepared by the Board of 
Theological Education of the LCA were distributed early in January, and re- 
turned at the end of the month to each committeeman for evaluation. Then on 
March 20 all students applying for ordination were called together for indi- 
vidual examination. This rather detailed process has assured that the candidates 
for ordination have been heard, and that, to the best of the committee's 
understanding, it has fulfilled its role. It should be noted that the candidates 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 117 

impressed themselves upon the committee as being dedicated, well trained and 
qualified men for the Gospel ministry. 

The examining committee is given other tasks besides checking new can- 
didates on behalf of the Lutheran Church in America. Policies with reference 
to payment of expenses of those who come for examination have been formed 
and followed. 

Provision is made for examination of those who have resigned from the 
ministry to apply for eligibility to receive and accept a call. The committee 
has been given the assignment to examine those who wish to return to the 
ministry. One such case has been handled by the committee this year. After 
thorough study, evaluation and interviews, the committee declared William Carr 
eligible to receive a call. 

The Examining Committee unanimously recommends to the North Carolina 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, that upon the satisfactory completion 
of their academic work and upon the receipt and acceptance of a regular call 
to serve these men, now named, be ordained by the North Carolina Synod LCA: 

GLEN CHARLES BITTER, member of St. Michael Church, High Point, called to 
Holy Cross, Excelsior, Minnesota. 

LEONARD HOMER BOLICK, member of St. Mark Church, Lenoir, call pending. 

ROBERT GEORGE COON, member of Daniels Church, Lincolnton, called to 
Trinity Church, Greenville, S. C. as assistant pastor. 

LEWIS BELTON DOGGETT, JR., member of St. John Church, Cherryville, called 
to York-Chester area, South Carolina. 

DAVID EDMOND HARDY, member of New Covenant Church, High Point, called 
to Nova Scotia in the Eastern Canada Synod. 

BILLY BURNS MIMS, member of First Church, Greensboro, called to Witten- 
berg Church, Granite Quarry. 

DAVID LENTZ MISENHEIMER, member Haven Church, Salisbury, called to 
Mt. Tabor Church, West Columbia, S. C. as associate pastor. 

GARY ALLEN PERRYMAN, member of First Church, Greensboro, called to Christ 
Church, Elkin. 

JOHN THOMAS RIMMER, member of Prince of Peace Church, Kinston, called 
to Christ Church, East Spencer. 

TIMOTHY RICHARD SWANSON, member Messiah Church, Hickory, called to 
Holy Trinity Church, Manasquan, New Jersey. 

GERALD PATRICK WALLACE, member of St. Andrew Church, Concord, called 
to Holy Cross Church, Mocksville. 

C. MARION STARR, Chairman 
JOHN W. COBB, Secretary 

ADOPTED. 

President Whittecar presented each candidate for ordination to the con- 
vention. 

LCA Presentation 

The Rev. Dr. Carl Thomas, LCA representative, was recognized for his 
first presentation. 

In connection with the report, President Whittecar recognized those persons 
of the synod who are directly related to the life of the Lutheran Church in 
America by having them seated on the platform during the presentation of the 
LCA report. 

Dr. Thomas spoke from the perspective of the whole church, and how 
modern trends are affecting the life of the church. 



118 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

He described the church as a human organism which acts and reacts with 
emotions to the situations at hand. 

He described the organism of the church as being generally in good health 
with a few symptoms of illness. 

He outlined the signs of health as — 

1. being rooted in faith in Jesus Christ; 

2. emphasis on study of the Scriptures; 

3. discerning God's will amid all the ambiguities of life; 

4. re-emergence of emphasis on making Christ known to the world; 

5. seeking to be the service church. 

Dr. Thomas raised certain questions which may indicate early warning signs 
of illness, as follows: 

1. What is the significance of a declining membership? 

2. Why are we plagued with financial problems? 

3. Will present trend toward decentralization go so far that the general 
church will not be able to respond o needs in areas where the church 
is little populated? 

4. Will attempts of the church to become an inclusive fellowship result in 
pluralism or polarization? 

Dr. Thomas reviewed issues that will be facing the LCA Dallas convention. 

The time had come for the division of the convention into floor commit- 
tees. The convention was divided into four sub-committees by the color on the 
delegates identification card. 

President Whittecar gave instructions to floor committees and for balloting. 

Floor committees met in the hotel ball rooms from 3:15-5:15 p.m.

LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 119 

Dr. Whittecar preached the sermon on the theme of Celebrating and 
reasons for it: 

Because of what God has done for us and his victory for us; 

Because He makes us new men in Christ; 

Because we are the people of God. 

For these reasons, it is time to celebrate, he said. 
Communicants came forward by the hundreds. 
The offering was given to the N. C. Lutheran Homes.

Pastor Jay Harbinson spoke in support of the report, suggesting that "stew- 
ardship" is broader in its meaning than money; that full-life is invalued in the 
total concept. 

The Report of the Committee on Evangelism (p. 123), was brought to at- 
tention by the floor committee, which asked Chairman Floyd Bost of the com- 
mittee to give information on "Key 73." Pastor Bost made reference to the 
special Task Force which was involved in extensive preparation. He said that no 
"canned programs" are anticipated to be used in the local congregation. 

A film prepared on behalf of the task force by Dr. Douglas Fritz was 
shown to the assembly, and will be available for congregational use. 

The Report of the Committee on Worship & Music (p. 125), was called 
to the attention of the delegates. 



122 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The Report of the Committee on Architecture end Fine Arts (p. 1 26) was 

commended by the floor committee for study. 

Auxiliaries (p. 127) — Chairman Leo Smith, by approval of the Floor 
Committee, was given opportunity to present representatives of Lutheran Church 
Women and Lutheran Men. Mrs. E. Ray King, LCW unit president, brought 
greetings from the women's auxiliary. She spoke of the stamp and coupon 
project which secured a station wagon and carport for the Albemarle Unit of 
N. C. Lutheran Homes, of the unit convention at Lenoir Rhyne College June 
8-10. In connection with this report Dr. Whittecar called attention to the 
Patterson Memorial Fund. 

Harold A/cKnight, Lutheran Men president, brought greetings. "Men Move 
to the Front," designated as theme of the next men's convention, is also sym- 
bolic of a renewed thrust in stewardship, evangelism, youth work, and a goal 
of $50,000 for the Fiftieth Anniversary of the men's organization. Pastor Walter 
Yount, newly elected Executive Director of LM, was presented. A supplementary 
report in the packet was emphasized as vital information. 

Committee on Publications and Publicity presented its report through Chair- 
man Robert Kepley, who in his remarks offered appreciation for the continued 
effective service of Editor George Shuford and Business Manager Mrs. B. D. 
Castor and the entire staff. Congregations were asked to keep accurate dup- 
licate lists of subscriptions, and to use these to keep addresses up-to-date in 
the business office. 

Report of the Committee of Service to Military Personnel. Pastor John Bar- 
ringer made brief comments, speaking to the point of the discontinuance of 
this committee. The Executive Board of synod has proposed to give the duties 
to the Evangelism Committee, which the committee itself recommended that 
its duties be vested in the Social Ministry Committee. President Whittecar ruled 
that the proper time to make such selection of designation would be in con- 
nection with the Executive Board Report on Wednesday morning. 

Dr. J. Lewis Thornburg moved that the secretary of synod write a letter of 
appreciation to Mr. Karl Patterson for his and his family's long and continued 
support that comes through the Patterson Memorial Fund. ADOPTED. 

By unanimous consent, the report of the Executive Report, scheduled as item 
number 6 of the morning agenda, was postponed in order to get to Floor Com- 
mittee #2. 



Stewardship 



In an effort to cut down on expenses only two meetings of the Stewardship 
Committee have been held since the 1971 convention of synod; December 16, 
1971 and April 20, 1972. 

The following plans have been implemented by the committee during the 
year in its effort to provide resources to lead the congregations of synod to 
higher levels of Christian service and giving: 

1 . Production partner with the LCA Stewardship Commission in making 
available the audio-visual "Me" to visualize the mission of the Church on LCA, 
synod and congregational levels. Forty churches in the synod used this audio- 
visual in their fall stewardship programs. 

2. Workshops were conducted for congregational stewardship chairmen at 
six district meetings in January, February, and March 1972. 

3. Co-sponsored with other committees and the auxiliaries a workshop for 
new pastors in the synod and their wives February 1-2, 1972. 

4. Helped finance the monthly "Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry 
Bulletin" which is mailed to seven persons in each congregation. A statement 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 123 

showing apportionment remittances for the congregations accompanies each issue 
of the bulletin. 

5. District representatives have participated in "Committee Night" Work- 
shops in congregations to offer "on the spot consultation" to congregational 
stewardship committees. 

The committee likes to think that its activities contributed to some extent to 
record apportionment receipts of $1,219,015 during 1971. This response was 
$30,488.83 and 2.56% ahead of the 1970 apportionment remittances. The 
receipts provided 79.73% of the synod's budget. The synod and institutions 
received 89.34% of their budgeted amounts and the receipts provided the LCA 
with 80.32% of the apportioned amount. 

Largely due to a shortage of funds the committee curtailed its activities 
during the year as follows: (1) Only two meetings were held; (2) A brochure 
showing how each $100 of apportionment is spent was not produced for distri- 
bution in the congregations; (3) Apportionment report cards were not distrib- 
uted to the congregations; (4) A retreat for the committee on Christian Family 
Money Management was cancelled, and (5) Plans for District Councilmen's 
meetings were scrapped. The committee spent $1,468.58 of its $1,500 budgeted 
amount for 1971 and any one of the above items would have put expenditures 
beyond income which the committee felt would not be good stewardship espe- 
cially in view of a 79.6% apportionment response from the congregations. 

Stewardship plans for 1972 include the following: 

1. Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School at Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege Friday and Saturday, August 4-5. 

2. District workshops with congregational stewardship chairmen. 

3. New pastors' workshop. 

4. Monthly Stewardship Bulletin. 

5. "On the spot consultations" with congregational committees. 

6. Two audio visuals "Yours" and "Me" will be available for congregat- 
ional stewardship programs in 1972. 

Each congregation is encouraged to become familiar with ail stewardship 
resources provided by the LCA and the synod and to make use of those which 
will enable it to reach higher levels of Christian service and giving.

Evangelism 



The Operational Committee on Evangelism met four times since the 1971 
convention of synod. Three of the four meetings were in connection with the 
Key '73 Task Force. 

The evangelism efforts in the North Carolina Synod during the past year 
have centered around the following activities: 

1. Three 24 hour retreats were held in May for host pastors and mission- 
ed preparatory to the area evangelism missions in September. The retreats, 
featuring a presentation on the theme "Sent" by the Rev. C. Peter Setzer, 
were well attended and made a significant contribution to the success of the 
areo missions. 



124 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



2. One hundred and twenty-seven congregations participated in the synod- 
wide area evangelism missions during September 1971. The theme for the 
area missions was "Sent". Dinner meetings for host pastors and missioners 
were held in five districts on Saturday preceding the beginning of the mission 
on Sunday. 

3. The evangelism committee co-sponsored with other committees and the 
auxiliaries a workshop for new pastors in the synod and their wives February 
1-2, 1972. 

4. Helped finance the monthly "Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry 
Bulletin" which is mailed to seven persons in each congregation. 

5. District representatives have participated in "Committee Night" work- 
shops in congregations to offer "on the spot consultation" to congregational 
evangelism committees. 

6. The synod's contact and referral service was in operation each month 
to help congregations keep up with "moving Lutherans". 

7. Workshops were conducted for congregational evangelism chairmen at 
six district meetings in January, February, and March 1972. 

8. The committee along with the South Carolina Synod, and the com- 
mission on Evangelism sponsored the fourth edition of the Carolinas' Evangelism 
Conference February 7-8, 1972 at St. Mark, Charlotte. Six hundred were in 
attendance. The conference theme was "Communicating the Gospel". 

The evangelism activities for 1972-73 will be built around Key '73, the 
year of Evangelism. The synod's Key '73 task force of nineteen persons is 
composed of the members of the operational committee on evangelism and rep- 
resentatives from the following synodical committees: stewardship, parish edu- 
cation, American missions, social ministry, worship and music, youth ministry, 
and the executive board. Key '73 will give each congregation the opportunity 
to make a situation analysis study, do some goal setting, and to determine a 
program to meet its own needs in outreach and witness. The synod's Key '73 
Task Force will provide resources in personnel and materials to help each 
congregation meet its needs. More than 100 different denominations in North 
America are participating in Key '73. The theme is "Calling our continent to 
Christ". "Come Together" is the theme of our LCA's Key '73 Evangelism 
emphasis. Key '73 should be a total parish effort, not just a program of the 
evangelism committee. It is hoped that every congregation in the N. C. Synod 
will participate in Key '73. Complete information will be provided by the 
synod's task force. 

The triennial Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School will be held 
at Lenoir Rhyne College, August 4-5, 1972. The evangelism section of the 
school will feature congregational participation in Key '73 and will be con- 
ducted by the Rev. Daniel Dickart of the LCA's Commission on Evangelism. 

The years 1972 and 1973 promise to be the most exciting period ever in 
evangelism as churches of all denominations join hands in this joint thrust. 
Key '73 should be a significant experience for each N. C. Synod congregation.

Mtisic and Worship 



The work of this committee continues to touch the lives of most of the 
congregations of the synod at some time or other during the year. Corporately, 
the committee has not been involved except for meeting of the committee at 
the Church House, but the individuals on the committee have been very active 
in a number of ways that we hope will result in the enrichment of the worship 
and music within the congregations of the North Carolina Synod. 

The members of the committee have been in contact with approximately 
52 churches and 24 additional pastors concerning many matters ranging from 
the purchase of organs to inquiries related particularly to the new provisional 
rite for Holy Communion. Since the workshops were conducted in early 1971, 
we have been called on to conduct several workshops for congregations within 
smaller geographical areas. 

NEW THINGS TO BE NOTED 

Church Music Memo: With the issuance of the Pentecost issue of Church 
Music Memo, we have the entree of a new organ of communication between 
the commissions on worship of the three major Lutheran bodies in this country 
and the churches. There are about 17,500 congregations of these three church 
bodies in the U.S.A. and Canada. Assuming that there are on the average two 
church musicians, a choir director and an organist, in each congregation, that 
means that there are about 35,000 active church musicians. For the people 
of the L.C.A., the idea of a Music Memo is not new. Our commission has 
published a fine and useful memo with the same name for several years. Now, 
with so much work being done jointly in the three churches, we are happy to 
see that this publication is now a coooerative endeavor. Miss Jnnet Moede, 
assistant to the executive director of the A.L.C. Commission on Worship, will 
be the editor. 

Lecticrtary Reform: A three yecr cycle of lessons is the aim of the Inter- 
Lutheran Commission on Worship. As a prelude to this, the ILCW has prepared 
a revision of the historic pericope series with a slightly modified calendar 
(Epiphany extended to Ash Wednesday. Sundays numbered after Pentecost). 
It is being offered for provisional use only for study purpose's and will not be 
offered for official adoption by the churches. This one year cycle is available 
from the LCA Commission for 25s!. 

Oceosiomal Services: During 1972, new ILCW materials will be the Marriaqe 
Service, Hymns for Baptism and Holy Communion, and a Service of the Word. 
More information will be forthcoming to pastors from the L.C.A. Commission 
on Worship. 

Contemporary Worship — #2: We are not able to determine at this point 
exactly how much use is being made of the new provisional rite for Holy Com- 
munion. The words of Dr. Eugene Brand, Executive Director of the Commission 
on Worship for the L.C.A. , are particularly helpful in our understanding the 
proper usage of this rite. Dr. Brand writes, "CW-2 is not intended to displace 
the Service Book and Hymnal rite for Holy Communion. It is the first step 
along the way. No one is forced to use it, but I do hope that many will, 
entering into its spirit and giving it a chance on its own terms. Rites cannot 
be created at a desk, but neither can they be criticized there fairly!" 

New Collects: Many questions have been asked about the use of the 

Collects in the Service Bock and Hymnal. We are happy to inform you that 
a revision has been made of these collects, running from the 1st Sunday in 
Advent to Pentecost, and also Prayers for Special Occasions. This revision has 
been prepared by the Sub-committee on Prayers of the ILCW. These prayers 
will be distributed upon request from the offices of Commission on Worship 
of the ALC, LCA, and LC-MS. These prayers are offered as a common exper- 
iment for participating churches as the v/orship life of the whole church is 
being renewed and strengthened. As the new liturgies take form, and changes 
in the calendar and lectionary are decided, a more definite set of Prayers of 
the Day and Seasons will be possible.

WORKSHOPS 

By the time of synod meeting, the chairman of your committee will have 
attended two important workshops. The first was held on March 6 through 10 
at the World Center for Liturgical Studies in Boynton Beach, Florida. The theme 
of this conference, "The Ecology of Communication in The Christian Assembly", 
was presented by Professor Maurice J. Niedenthal of the Chicago Seminary. Dr. 
Niedenthal lectured on "Proclamation — Lectionary — And Communication". 
The Commission on Worship of the LCA was the co-sponsor of this particular 
series along with the World Center. 

The second conference was held the first week in May at the Terrace Hilton 
Hotel, Cincinnati, Ohio. This conference was sponsored by the Commission on 
Worship of the Lutheran Church of the LCA. Your chairman hopes that by the 
time of the synod meeting he will be able to have some word of report from 
these two important conferences. Perhaps this will take the form of a printed 
supplement to this report. 

SYNOD WORKSHOPS 

It is exciting to note that the N. C. Synod led all of the other synods of 
the LCA in attendance at the workshops on the new Communion rite. Over 
1,500 people were present tor these workshops. This number has been increased 
now due to the individual workshops which have already been mentioned in 
this report. 

CLOSING 

We pray for new and exciting services of worship in our churches! We hope 
for great progress in the ministry of music in our congregations. To that end 
your committee pledges to help in any way to help you to truly CELEBRATE 
the Resurrection of Christ and His continuing Presence in our world.

Architecture and Fine Arts 

The Committee on Architecture and Fine Arts has held no meetings during 
the year following the 1971 Synod Convention and has no report of activities to 
make. However, several items of information are given below as a part of this 
report. 

1. Congregations of the synod are reminded of services offered, namely, 
the handling of inquiries relative to building programs. Such inquiries may be 
made through the committee or direct to the LCA's Commission on Church 
Architecture. On the synodical level the particular concern is in the area of 
parsonage planning and construction. 

2. Attention is called to a new, synod-owned filmstrip, "Toward Under- 
standing Modern Churches", which is available for congregational use. It is an 
excellent 15-minute color filmstrip with record and guide, showing the evolving 
changes in church architecture. More important, it shows the relationship to 
worship, preaching the Word and administering the sacraments. Brochures on 
this filmstrip, as well as information on the purposes and services of the LCA's 
Commission on Church Architecture, are available to the delegates. 

3. Congregations are urged to a continuing involvement in the use of the 
arts as expressions of Christian worship and service. Banners, paintings, sculpture 
and drama lend themselves to Christian response and the communication of the 
Gospel.

Auxiliaries 

The Committee on Auxiliaries exists to serve as a means of communication 
between the synod and its two auxiliaries, Lutheran Church Women and Luth- 
eran Men. Members of the committee serve as advisors to these auxiliaries 
during the year. Two members of the committee have been assigned as con- 
sultants to Lutheran Church Women: Mrs. Jeff Norris and the Rev. M. L. 
Farris. Other members of the committee are ready and eager to serve as they 
are given the opportunity. 

The reports of the auxiliaries are encouraging and reflect the vision, enthus- 
iasm and consecration of both officers and members. They are worthy of our 
commendation. 

Congregations of the synod are encouraged to survey the work that is being 
done in their various localities and to strengthen if possible the witness of 
their auxiliaries. 

We submit the following reports to the synod as information. 

LUTHERAN CHURCH WOMEN 

Guided by our objectives for 1971: 

1. To accept new challenges and possibilities in work and service with 
all Christian women; 

2. To provide a continuing program of education for membership and 
leadership; 

3. To recognize and use all opportunities for witnessing; 

and with the convention theme in mind: "Witness Now, Christian"; Lutheran 
Church Women experienced an interesting and compelling year. 

Our Spring Fellowship meetings were attended by 1,678 members, thinking 
together on the theme: "Each One Reach One". 

There were 166 delegates and 285 visitors in attendance at the unit con- 
vention at Lenoir Rhyne College, June 10-12. 

A group of 14 delegates and 31 visitors attended the Triennial Convention 
in Philadelphia, August 16-20. 

We used the theme of the Auxiliary Convention, "Free in Christ, Free for 
Others", also as the theme of our district assembly meetings. We were happy 
to have our synod president, Dr. Whittecar, speak at each meeting. Workshops 
in all phases of our work highlighted these assemblies. 

We were gratified that we were able to reach our budget by 102.1%. 

One of our projects which elicited great support was the collection of trad- 
ing stamps and bonus coupons to secure a station wagon for the Lutheran Home 
at Albemarle. This project is completed with a special bank account for the 
upkeep of the station wagon. 

We welcomed one new congregational organization into our unit, Shepherd 
of the Sea, at Atlantic Beach. 

It is our privilege to be sponsoring organization for the Patterson Memorial 
Fund. We are proud of the service that this fund provides. 

Mrs. Ray R. Fisher, of our unit is a member of the Auxiliary Board. 

I am grateful for the active participation of our 185 congregational organ- 
izations, for all their members, and for our dedicated unit board, who with 
enthusiasm and dedication plan for and carry out the program of Lutheran 
Church Women.

LUTHERAN MEN 

The 49th annual convention of North Carolina Lutheran Men was held at 
St. Stephen's Lutheran Church, Hickory, the Rev. David Castor, pastor, on 
Nov. 3, 1971 beginning at 3:00 p.m. President Martin C. Pannell presided over 
the business sessions. 

In his report, the President stated that the one outstanding accomplishment 
of the year was the employment of the Rev. Walter N. Yount as the Executive 
Director of Lutheran Men. He also expressed his appreciation to Joe Ridenhour, 
Harry Fesperman end the Rev. Ernest Ridenhour who served as the screening 
committee to select the Director. 

Pastor Yount will serve part time for a period of two years and will give 
special attention to the promotion of the Loan and Gift Fund and to providing 
program materials for local units. He will also be available for visitation 
throughout the synod. 

The convention selected the following men to serve during the coming 
year: President — Harold F. McKnight of Charlotte; Secretary — V. J. Vierling 
of Winston-Salem; Treasurer - — • Carl R. Haynes of Salisbury; Executive Com- 
mitteemen ■ — G. C. Miller of Salisbury, and the Rev. David Castor of Hickory. 
Members at large: Martin C. Pannell, Past President; Harry B. Fesperman, David 
C. Beam, George Page and Ray A. Cline. State Committee Chairmen: Boy 
Scouts — Aubrey Mauney; Statistical Secretary — W. A. Klutz; Youth Work 
— - Odell Hess; Publicity — George Page; Loan and Gift Fund Director — 
Harry B. Fesperman; Loan and Gift Treasurer — R. Derwood Bost; Home Mis- 
sion Foundation Treasurer — Leonard Moretz; Extension and Promotion — 
Frank Lentz; Convention Chairman — Charles Ketner; History and Archives — 
Fred R. Smyre. 

Mr. Aubrey Mauney of Kings Mountain, Scouting Director, reported that 
the 20th Annual Lutheridge Scout Retreat was attended by 290 scouts and 
102 leaders. This was the largest number of leaders ever to attend a retreat. 
The decline in the number of boys was attributed to the fact that the Retreat 
was scheduled about the time for ihe opening of school. The Rev. John D. 
Lindler served as Chaplain. 

Charles Rhyne of Lincolnton and the Rev. John D. Mauney of Fayetteville 
were the 1971 recipients of the Lamb Award given for outstanding service to 
Scouting and to the Church. 

The Treasurer's Report revealed that 53 units remitted dues during 1971. 
This was an increase of 18 units over 1970. 

Loan and Gift Fund receipts for the year totaled $10,605.44. This was a 
decrease from the amount received during 1970. However, since North Carolina 
Lutheran Men will celebrate their 50th anniversary in 1972, the convention 
voted to set a goal of $50,000 for 1972 — $1,000 for each year of the 
organization's history. 

Home Mission Foundation receipts were $101,451.54. Treasurer Moretz 
reported that a loan of $45,000 had been made to Christus Victor, Research 
Triangle. Also that two congregations completed repayment of their loans in 
1971: Calvary, Concord, $30,000; and Prince of Peace, Salisbury, $15,000. 
There are 35 outstanding loans at the present time amounting to $717,35.1.18. 
During 1971 our mission churches saved over $50,000 by using Home Mission 
Foundation Funds as compared with using standard commercial loans. The need 
for additional funds is still great. 

Much preparation and work went into the planning of the Convention and 
banquet by he host church. Pastor Castor was ably assisted by A. J. Patton, 
Convention Chairman and Ray Angle, President of the local unit of Lutheran 
Men. Food for the banquet was cooked and served by the men of St. Stephen's. 
They also secured special prizes which were awarded during the evening. 
Speaker for the occasion was the Rev. Leslie Conrad, Jr., S.T.D. of Richardson,

Texos, who spoke on the subject, "Men Mastering Men". The Invocation was 
given by the Rev. Lester Wolf, pastor of St. Stephen's Lutheran Church-Missouri 
Synod and the Benediction was by the Rev. John Moebius, pastor of Miller's 
Lutheran Church, ALC. These churches are neighbors to St. Stephen's LCA. 

Plans are underway to hold the 1972 Convention in Ebenezer Lutheran 
Church, the Rev. Everette E. Home, pastor, near China Grove. 

Synodical units desiring information or assistance are urged to contact the 
Executive Director, the Rev. Walter Yount, or President Harold McKnight. 

Recommendation 

That the president of each of the two auxiliaries or his representative, be 
recognized in connection with his report to bring greetings to the synod.

Publications and Publicity 

The Committee on Publications and Publicity held one meeting during the 
year, on February 22, 1972, at the Church House. 

NORTH CAROLINA LUTHERAN — Editor's Report: "The N. C. LUTHERAN 
wishes to thank pastors and congregations of the synod for their continued sup- 
port enabling the newspaper to continue as a useful instrument of the church 
and its Lord. The staff realizes the paper is not ideal, in the sense that the 
format of more pages, appearing more often, larger print, and a greater sub- 
scription base of congregations on the every-active-resident-family-plan would 
greatly enhance the paper. They are aware, however, of stringent financial con- 
siderations on both synodical and congregational levels. 

The staff feels that the paper fills the gap between the national LUTHERAN 
and the local newsletter with more news per square inch than is found else- 
where, and that not only docs it cost, but "pays". (Studies by the LUTHERAN 
and the N. C. Baptist BIBLICAL RECORDER show that congregations with every 
member subscriptions are better informed and support the causes of the church 
better.) 

We solicit the support of people and pastors. We would also like to appeal 
for up-to-date addresses in year-to-year form, since changing "Robert R. Reader" 
to "Bob Reader" to "R. H. Reader" costs money as well as causing difficulty 
with the mailing permit and missed copies. 

We thank you for being patient with our shortcomings." 

— Rev. George W. Shuford, Editor 

The committee is indebted to the editor, the Rev. George W. Shuford, and 
the business-circulation manager, Mrs. B. D. Castor, for their fine work during 
the year under persistent financial restrictions. The publication performs a vital 
role and we hope more congregations will utilize it through the every home plan 
this year. The study, at the suggestion of the Executive Board, on the feasibility 
of making the NORTH CAROLINA LUTHERAN self-supporting is being con- 
tinued this year. Committee changes in this area of concern limited effectiveness 
of the study, and the committee is currently awaiting the results of an L.C.A. 
wide survey of synod publications undertaken by the Commission on Press, Radio 
and Television at the request of this committee's chairman.

THE LUTHERAN — THE LUTHERAN continues to receive promotional as- 
sistance through the use of District Chairman. 

PRESS, RADJO AND TELEVISION — As in the past, the committee relied 
on the Rev. Wilford Lyerly, D.D., director of the synodical news bureau, to 
publicize the activities of synod. The committee provided assistance in the area 
of coverage of synod conventions and the post-convention summary and in pro- 
viding a press room for the convention. We take this opportunity to thank the 
Rev. Wilford Lyerly for his devoted service in the area of this committee and 
the synodical news bureau in addition to his many other duties.

Service to Military Personnel 

The committee held two meetings during the year. One was held on October 
21, 1971 at St. James Lutheran Church, Fayetteville with three members and 
Lutheran Chaplains from Fort Bragg in attendance. A second meeting was held 
en February 10, 1972 at the Church House in Salisbury attended only by the 
chairman and President of Synod, the Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D. A dis- 
cussion between the chairmen and the President of synod resulted in the con- 
clusion that this committee is no longer feasible and should be discontinued. 

While fewer and fewer men are being drafted into the Armed Forces there 
should still remain a genuine pastoral concern on the part of the congregations 
and pastors of synod to minister to those serving in our military services. All 
pastors should acquaint themselves with the procedure to be followed by the 
young men of their congregations who wish to register as a conscientious ob- 
jector. A good program of pre-draft counseling will pay dividends in adjustment 
"to military life on the part of volunteers as well cs draftees. The plight of many 
of the American Youth who in the face of the draft fled to Canada and other 
foreign countries might well have been averted if they had received proper 
counseling. 

RECOMMENDATIONS: 

1. That the Committee on Service to Military Personnel be discontinued and 
that its duties be delegated to the Social Ministry Committee of Synod. 

2. That the By Laws of Synod under the section "Other Committees" be 
amended by deleting Section VII L.

REPORT OF FLOOR COMMITTEE NO. 2 

Reports reviewed by this committee were as follows — Parish Education, 
Youth Ministry. Camping, Lutheridge, Environmental Crisis Study, Historical 
Work. 

Report of Floor Committee #2, chaired by Mr. Jesse Sigmon and Dr. Albert 
H. Keck, Jr., was presented as follows: 

"We call the attention of the convention to the report of the Committee 
on Parish Education on page 133 and to the report of the Committee on 
Historical Work on page 148. We commend these committees for their fine 
work. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 133 

"The report of the Committee on Youth Ministry, p. 135, was heard 
with interest and is commended to your attention. An audio visual and dramatic 
presentation was also made and it was voted to authorize this committee to 
make this special presentation before the convention. 

"The report of the Board of Trustees of Lutheridge begins on page 138, 
and is commended to the attention of the convention. We were impressed with 
the additional comments of the Executive Director, the Rev. Robert L. Troutman, 
and recommend that he speak briefly to the convention. 

"The report of the Environmental Task Force, p. 145, deserves the 
study and attention of all congregations. The 14 suggested programs on page 

should be especially noted. It was voted to authorize Dr. James M. Un- 
glaube, a member of the Task Force, to speak briefly to the report before the 
convention. It was also voted to recommend the adoption of the 4 recommend- 
ations of the report found on pages 147-148. 

"We call your attention to the report of the Committee on Church Camping, 
(p. 136). The report was highlighted and supplemented by committee 
chairman, the Rev. David L. Castor, and other members of the committee and 
it was voted to have them make a brief presentation to the convention. 

"It was also voted that, following this presentation, the item from the 
Executive Board with its recommendations on the proposal of the Camping 
Committee for the employment of a Director of Outdoor Ministries be con- 
sidered by the convention." 

Report of the Committee on Youth Ministry (p. 135) was commended for 
attention. Pastor Phillip Deese made the introduction, and members of the 
Committee presented an audio-visual emphasis. 

Report of the Board of Trustees of Lutheridge (pp. 138-145) was called to 
attention. Executive Director Robert Troutman spoke on the summer program, 
stating that reservations are being filled rapidly, with necessity of adding some 
new program opportunities for Senior Highs. Early registration is an essential. 

Report of the Environmental Task Force (p. 145) was presented by Dr. 
James Unglaube, who described the structure and purpose of the group. The 
Recommendations were placed before the convention: 

Recommendation 1 — That this report be commended to every congregation 
in the North Carolina Synod for study and implementation. ADOPTED. 

Recommendation 2 — That every elected and appointed committee of the 
N. C. Synod and its congregations seek out ways to implement the afore- 
mentioned goals in their several individual ways. ADOPTED. 

Recommendation 3 — That the President of Synod establish an on-going 
appointive committee known hereafter as the Committee on Environmental 
Concerns; the responsibilities of the Committee will be to oversee and help 
implement the synod's corporate response to environmental problems now and 
in the future. ADOPTED. 

Action on Recommendation 3 was postponed until the budget presentation 
time, since it has to do with a budget item, (continued on p. 197) 



Parish Education 

The Committee on Parish Education is responsible for helping congregations 
develop opportunities and solve problems in this changing society. In order to 
fulfill this responsibility the committee is promoting parish education as a min- 
istry of the church. The areas of service and effort to be expended in fulfilling 
the committee's responsibility are mentioned below. 



134 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

SKILL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM 

Three goals were set by the committee to be met by the end of 1973. 
These goals serve as the plan for the committee's Skill Development Program. 

(1) Each congregation develop skills in planning its educational program. 

District Representatives have been specially trained by the Board of Parish 
Education to work with the congregations' representatives at the Consultation 
District Meetings, giving them skills in planning their educational program. 

(2) Teachers and other leaders know the resources available and have 
developed criteria for selection. 

(3) Teachers and leaders have skills in methodology. In order to reach the 
second and third goals the committee has recruited and trained Skill Develop- 
ment Leaders in each district who will conduct workshops in each district and 
seek to help teachers in a cne-to-one relationship. The Skill Development Lead- 
ers ere trained in the latest teaching skills, knowledge of curriculum resources 
and criteria for selecting non-curriculum sources, and have agreed to serve for 
a minimum of two years. All expenses of the Skill Development Program are 
being provided by the committee. There are six Skill Development Leaders in 
each district knowledgeable in the following age groups: Pre-school; grades 1-3; 
4-6; 7-9; 10-12; and Adult. Marcus Smith is chairman of the Skill Develop- 
ment Program sub-committee. 

CONFIRMATION AND FIRST COMMUNION 

Feeling the need to advise and otherwise aid congregations in the opportun- 
ities presented in the new approach to Confirmation Ministry, the district rep- 
resentatives, at the 1971 Fall District meetings offered a survey to pastors and 
delegates asking for their needs in this area. A sub-committee headed by Pastor 
Elvin Bumgarner is visiting the congregations requesting help, interpreting 
materials available, suggesting time schedules, and offering other suggestions. 
The sub-committee welcomes any further requests and suggestions. 

MULTI-MEDIA 

Early in 1972 a sub-committee with Pastor George Simmons as chairman 
was appointed to inspect the Synod's Film Library, another responsibility of the 
Parish Education Committee. While the Film Library has become a vital resource 
to the congregations, the unfolding opportunities in the whole area of multi- 
media needed to be considered. This sub-cemmittee hopes to work with talented 
persons throughout the synod in making available multi-media experiences in 
Christian Education. 

FIELD CONSULTANT 

Sister Evelyn Houlroyd continues to serve a growing number of congregations 
in the western part of the state as a Field Consultant in Parish Education 
Supported by the congregations served and her own "tent-making," Sister Evelyn 
provides the experience and training of a Director of Christian Education to 
churches large and small employing her services. This ministry is available for 
and recommended to any and all congregations in that area. 

VCS WORKSHOPS 

The committee is sponsoring one or more Vacation Church School Work- 
shops in each district this spring. As new materials and new teaching methods 
arrive on the scene, the need for this service continues. Approximately 500 
teachers and leaders attended these workshops in 1971. 

In addition to these major contributions, the committee provides other serv- 
ices to the synod. From year to year the committee recommends various pro- 
grams, retreats, or special events to be held at Lutheridge. The chairman of 
the committee is automatically a member of the Lutheridge Program Committee. 

The committee makes a presentation on parish education at the annual 
Workshop for New Pastors and their Wives each year. 

The Secretary of Christian Education works closely with the committee, 
offering advice, co-ordinating planning with other related committees and syn- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 135 

odical functions, and interpreting synodical policies. The Secretary also oversees 
publication of the periodica! CONTACT which helps this and other committees 
disseminate information to congregations.

Youth Ministry 



"Project 33" or the Youth Staffer Project is the opening part of this report. 
It has top priority with the North Carolina Committee on Youth Ministry. Last 
year, as the plans were adopted, there were many questions as to how the 
program would develop. Now, after the experience with Project 33, it is said 
simply that it is not a program, it is a person. Miss Mary Ann Moller has given 
meaning to the word youth staffer and has brought much life to our synod. 
Mary Ann has spent her time with our committee, with clusters of congregations 
and with individual congregations. She coordinates our consultation teams and 
gives Youth Ministry in North Carolina a close tie to the local scene. 

The Executive Board has approved the committee's request for a Youth 
Staffer in 1972-73, and application has been made to the Commission on Youth 
Ministry. North Carolina can iook forward to the continuation of local centered 
youth ministry in Project 33. 

The Committee on Youth Ministry began its 1971-72 year by attending the 
area workshop for synodical committees. The workshop is conducted by the 
Commission on Youth Ministry and was held at Camp Kinard, South Carolina, 
on September 16-18. Four target areas were developed at the workshop: (1) 
Youth working and communicating with other youth; (2) Youth working and 
communicating with adults and vice versa; (3) Youth working and communicat- 
ing with the congregation and vice versa; and (4) Congregational stances on 
youth ministry. 

During the months following the workshop there were many meetings to 
implement programs and projects. 

One of the major projects is the use of consultation teams. There are now 
seven teams available to congregations and clusters of youth groups. Those who 
have the training and are serving include: The Rev. Terry Agner, The Rev. 
Tommy Beaver, Amy Best, Leslie Brazelle, Julie Casper, Mildred Casper, Pat 
Heavner, The Rev. Charlie Huggins, The Rev. John Lingle, The Rev. Henry 
McKay, Wally Mullen, Janie Owen, Susan Simmons, Bryan Tilden, Jean Wyont. 
Three additional teams are scheduled during 1972. 

Another significant project which will continue in 1972 is Ministry Camping. 
The Rev. C. Peter Setzer is in charge cf plcnning for the ministry with the 
retarded and the aged. 

The Penny Parade which began in 1971 will end in May of '72 with the 
contributions being used to provide water and sanitary facilities on the camp- 
site between Raleigh and Sanford. 

North Carolina will be sending ten people to Convo '72 in Dallas, Texas, 
for the LCA Convention. It is encouraging to see the interest and involvement 
of youth in the life of the church. This would indicate that the youth are not 
copping out and that the church is not irrelevant. 

Leadership Training Events were evaluated and some changes have been 
made. Rather than being six days in length the 1972 event will be Wednesday 



136 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

evening through Saturday noon and v/ill consist of three sections, one for junior 
high youth, one for senior high youth and one for adult workers with youth. 

In addition to the Ministry end Leadership Training Events, there will be 
a Mass Rally for all N. C. youth. Announcement of these events will be made 
when plans are completed. 

The committee has worked long hard, not only on planning the synod wide 
activities, but in working with local youth groups and clusters, assisting them 
in planning, in conducting retreats, in leading training experiences, and advisor 
workshops. 

Requests from congregations for assistance are increasing and we are grate- 
ful for the opportunity to serve local groups. Thank you is an appropriate ex- 
pression and is extended to you, the congregations of the N. C. Synod, for 
your support and spirit of fellowship.

Church Camping 



How many different discoveries can be made in the area of Outdoor Min- 
istries? How many experiences of witnessing God in the beauty of nature can 
be counted by members of our synod? How many different ways are there to 
say the future of Church Camping is unlimited? Christian education in the 
Out-of-doors offers great possibilities to our synod. To meet these challenges 
and to provide programs, your committee on Church Camping is striving to 
reach its goals. Young as well as senior Christians are witnessing anew the 
presence of God in the programs of Church Camping. 

SUB-COMMITTEE REPORT ON SANFORD PROJECT 

The development of our new camp in Harnett County continues to be the 
main thrust of the committee work. We believe that 1972 will be the key year 
in the beginning development of this program. Since the last convention, we 
have acquired en additional tract of land of 51 acres, bringing the total of the 
new camp site to 554 acres. With this beautiful package of land on the Cape 
Fear River, we have commissioned our camp planner Professor Charles Stort 
of Raleigh to begin the lay-out of the master site plan. Preliminary plans will 
be presented to the committee in April and Professor Stott expects to complete 
the master plan by September. 

To develop the Sanford Camp and work with camp planner Charles Stott 
in the final lay-out of the camp site, your committee on Church Camping is 
recommending to the executive board of the synod that an executive director 
of Outdoor Ministries be hired. We believe that limited camping experiences 
will happen on the site in 1973, and with each year thereafter, under the lead- 
ership of the new director, Outdoor Ministries will expand. 

Your committee only wishes thct we could convey to the people of our 
synod the beauty, splendor, and potential of this new camping area. 

A. The location of the site offers limitless possibilities. Raven Rock State 
Park, now under development, is only a few miles down stream. The New Hope 
Dam site is also only a few miles up stream, and the new Carolina Power & 
Light Dam and lake site in Wake County is within easy busing distance. Hiking 
possibilities on the site and on adjacent timber lands are offered. Canoe Camp- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 137 

ing on the Cape Fear River will be developed. Two lake sites are being studied. 
B. The committee intends to develop a Conference and Retreat Center 
plus facilities for Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Family Camping. An out door 
chapel, swimming pools, and a nature center, nature trails, natural areas, and 
a crafts center. All of these are being studied. 

SUB-COMMITTEE ON KURE BEACH 

The Sub Committee on Kure Beach is delighted to report the continued use 
in year-round ministries of the retreat center. It is estimated that over 1,000 
campers have used our retreat center since our last convention. All time periods 
of the summer of 1971 were occupied and the manager maintained a list 
seeking reservations in case of cancelations. The following schedule was adopted 
by your committee: Check-out time will be 12:00 p.m. noon, and check-in time 
will be 2:00 p.m. The rate of the mid-week time period was raised to $90.00. 
All groups are reminded that the center is limited to a capacity of 34. 

New water safety equipment is being provided at the center for the 1972 
season. Continued improvement and maintenance are a yearly concern of your 
committee. Currently, repair wcrk continues to make this an acceptable camp- 
ing unit. Groups are reminded that leservations are taken on a first come first 
served basis. We regret that many groups across the synod are unable to make 
reservations due to the demand and lack of time available. We wish to express 
our appreciation to Mrs. G. L. Laughlin, manager of the center, for the wonder- 
ful leadership she is providing in this special ministry. We request that all 
persons using the center give Mrs. Laughlin your full cooperation. 

SUB-COMMITTEE ON LUTHERIDGE AND OTHER RETREAT CENTERS 

The Sub Committee on Lutheridge and other Retreat Centers wish to express 
our appreciation to the leaders of Lutheridge and especially to the Executive 
Director, the Reverend Robert Troutman, for the excellent program and min- 
istries of Lutheridge. We salute those who have labored so hard in this area 
of Christian Education and appreciate their effectiveness. 

This Sub Committee also is currently working with the Reverend Lorry 
Campbell and Holy Communion Congregation of Banner Elk in providing a 
camp planner to advise in this recreational ministry in the mountains. Your 
Committee still maintains a keen interest in the development of a retreat pro- 
gram in the Lake Norman area. However, finances has limited current expect- 
ations of any facilities in this area in the near future.

Lutheridge 



Once again it is time for the Board of Trustees of Lutheridge to report the 
activities and operation of the institution to its suppotring synods and congre- 
gations. This annual report is made with enthusiasm and optimism. The past 
year revealed progress in almost every facet of operation and the outlook for 
the year ahead is bright and promising. The growing potential of ministry through 
camping, conferences, and retreats continues to challenge and excite all who 
are involved with Luthridge. This report will spotlight some recent developments 
and also glimpse briefly into the future. 

Registrations for the 1971 camper program increased by 6% over 1970. 
This statistic is measured by camper weeks, a term describing one camper and 
one week's participation in the summer program. Registrations by age group 
were (for comparison, the 1970 records are included in parentheses): 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 139 

Grades 3-5 796 (1003) 

Grades 6-8 (Junior High) 805 ( 600) 

Grades 9-12 (Senior High) 166 ( 81) 

Mentally Retarded Children 78 ( 51) 

Total Camper Weeks 1845 (1735) 

Adjustments in the grade grouping system are reflected in these figures, 
particularly in the senior high section where ninth graders were included for 
the first time in 1971. An additional week for mentally retarded children re- 
sulted in increased participation in this specialized ministry. 

Lutheridge campers come mainly from the area of the supporting synods, 
as these figures reveal (1970 records in parentheses)" 

North Carolina Synod 993 ( 956) 

South Carolina Synod 482 ( 489) 

Southeastern Synod 312 ( 260) 

Other Synods (mainly Florida and Virginia) 58 ( 30) 

Approximately 7% of our campers are non-Lutherans, nearly all of whom 
are invited by and requested as cabin-mates by Lutheran campers. 

Registrations by adults and their families (children mostly below camper 
age) are recorded in two categories: full week registrants (six days) and part 
week rgeistrants (one to five days). 1971 summer figures compared with 1970 
(in parentheses) reveal: 

Full Week: Adults 443 ( 418) 

Children 137 ( 136) 

Total Full Week 580 ( 554) 

Part Week: Adults 413 ( 467) 

Children 148 ( 199) 

Total Part Week 561 ( 666) 

Totals: Adults 856 ( 885) 

Children 285 ( 335) 

Total Adult/Family 1141 (1220) 

Although total registration figures show a decrease from 1970, the increase 
in full week adult figures indicates a higher participation in conference programs 
— an encouraging situation when measured by an objective of leadership 
education. 

The majority of adult/family registrants also come from the supporting 
synods. For example: 

North Carolina Synod 532 ( 542) 

South Carolina Synod 221 ( 306) 

Southeastern Synod 258 ( 196) 

Other Synods (mainly Florida) 130 ( 176) 

These figures include adults and children, both full and part week registrants. 

The most rapid growth in Lutheridge activities is in the area of retreats. 
Providing services and facilities to retreat/conference groups has enlarged our 
operation to the entire year. Only in the winter months can a weekend be found 
when nc guests are at Lutheridge (and then the weather has probably prohibited 
travel). We are endeavoring to keep an accurate record of retreatants and con- 
ferees in 1972. A realistic estimate for 1971 would approach 3,000 persons. 
Receipts from retreat/conference activities increased by 25% over 1970. Many 
kinds of groups have used the facilities — youth groups, church councils, LCW 
groups, congregations, seminars, institutes, community groups, pastors' retreats, 
and others. 

In 1971, apportionment receipts from congregations of the supporting synods 
amounted to $61,272.20, an increase of $5,397.97 over the previous year. The 
North Carolina Synod provided over one-half of this increase or $3,065.28. 
Total receipts from this synod amounted to $29,054.82. This example of tan- 



140 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

gible support is most gratifying. Benevolence quotas in 1971 and 1972 are 
based on c formula of seventy cents per active confirmed member. Increases 
in benevolence receipts have allowed Lutheridge to operate with a balanced 
budget and to make slow but determined progress in the maintenance and 
expansion of our facilities and program. 

Included with this report is the Report of the Treasurer which provides the 
financial details of 1971. In January 1972, an independent real estate appraisal 
was completed by an Asheville firm. They reported that at that time, the market 
value of the church's investment in Lutheridge was $1,157,000. This figure 
does not include much of the equipment and furnishings. It does, however, indi- 
cate the keen interest which the synods have manifested in a ministry through 
this camp and conference center. Details of the new appraisal are included in 
the Treasurer's Report. 

Since its beginning, the investment of money and ministry made by the 
church in Lutheridge has been entrusted to the Board of Trustees. A strong 
sense of commitment to this trust pervades the deliberations of the Board. Two 
meetings were held in 1971: May 13-14 and October 21-22. Committees have 
met in conjunction with Board meetings and on other occasions when necessary. 
Lutheridge is fortunate to have laymen and clergy whose dedication and insight 
provide vital resources to its operation. 

In recognition of their service on behalf of the synod, the Trustees from 
North Carolina are listed below along with their committee and officer as- 
signments: 

The Rev. Terry W. Agner, Chairman, Program Committee; 

Mr. Joe Baker, Property Committee; 

The Rev. David L. Castor, Publicity and Promotion Committee; 

The Rev. Dr. Joseph D. Glass, Chairman, Publicity and Promotion Committee; 

Mr. John H. Ketner, Chairman, Finance Committee; 

Mr. C. Miller Sigmon, President of the Board; 

Miss Mary Stamy, Program Committee; 

The Rev. Donald E. Woolly, Chairman, Property Committee; 

The Rev. Dr. George R. Whittecar, Executive Committee. 

In 1971, we welcomed Mr. Baker and Pastor Castor as new members elected 
at last year's synod convention. We take this opportunity to express appreciation 
to Mrs. Roy D. Apple and the Rev. W. David Wise for their valuable service. 
Board members have been most generous in giving time and energy to guidance 
and oversight of Lutheridge. They form an important communication bridge 
between the institution and those who own it. 

Lutheridge is pleased to announce a newcomer to its year round staff. Mrs. 
Sarah B. Frey began her work in January 1972. She has been a member of 
the summer staff, serving as Resident Manager of Kohnjoy Inn in 1970 and 
1971. Mrs. Frey is a native of Little Mountain, S. C, and a graduate of 
Winthrop College. For 25 years, she was Parish Worker at Resurrection Luth- 
eran Church in Augusta, Georgia. Prior to that, she taught school in Gastonia. 
She is the widow of the late Albert W. Frey. They made their home in North 
Augusta, S. C. In addition to continuing as Manager of Kchnjoy Inn, she will 
act as Retreat/Conference Registrar and Hostess and will assist in supervising 
housekeeping personnel and in office operation. 

The 1972 summer brochure will contain full details of Program Committee 
planning for this year. Every effort is being made to improve upon the exper- 
ience of past years. Joining with Board members on the Program Committee 
have been representatives from the Parish Education and Youth Ministry Com- 
mittees of the three synods as well as synodical officials with staff responsibil- 
ities in these areas. All are contributing to creative and sensitive program 
planning. 

The past year has been an active, busy time for Lutheridge. And we believe 
it has been fruitful in terms of an educational and recreational ministry for 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 141 

the church and her people. The keen interest, faithful prayers, and generous 
support of our constituents have sustained and supported this ministry. We 
thank you! And we praise God for the partnership into which he has called 
us in this ministry.

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the records of the Business Manager of Lutheridge, Inc., 
Mr. Compton H. Usina, Sr., for the year ended December 31, 1971. Our report 
consists of this letter and the following exhibits: 

Exhibit A Statement of Cash Receipts and Disbursements 
Exhibit B Statement of Capital Assets 

Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and 
such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. 

In presenting the statement of capital assets, we have used the figures from 
an appraisal report prepared by W. T. Duckworth Co., Asheville, North Carolina, 
as of Jcnuary 13, 1972, presenting current valuations of real estate kitchen and 
dining hall equipment. Current valuations for other equipment and furnishings 
were estimated by the Camp Director and Business Manager. 

During the year, $2,500.00 was paid on a loan due Wachovia Bank and 
Trust Co., Morganton, North Carolina, leaving an unpaid balance of $8,000.00 
as of December 31, 1971. Included in the 1971 capital expenditures of 
$10,699.74 were repairs and maintenance of $6,580.50. Cash balance for the 
year increased $3,679.99 as compared to a decrease in cash of $3,479.25 for 
the previous year-end. 

In our opinion, Exhibit A presents fairly the cash position and receiDts and 
disbursements of Lutheridge, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 1971, on 
a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. 

Very truly yours,

PREAMBLE 

Created in God's image, one of man's inherent responsibilities is that of 
steward of His creation. The scriptures declare, "The earth is the Lord's, and 
the fulness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein", and "The Lord 
God took, the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it." 
Man is not apart or above nature; rather, he is an integral part of nature. In 
obedience to and in love for the Creator, man must exercise stewardship of 
the earth; he is responsible to God for the whole of creation of which he is a 
part. 

As caretaker of God's creation, man has not functioned as a responsible 
steward. There is pollution of every mcijor river and lake system. The air is 
fouled with a diversity of gases, particles, dirt and other materials. There is 
erosion, waste, noise, filth and litter on every side. Solid waste disposal has 
become a major problem, especially in urban areas. The fantastic rate at 
which the human population has increased in numbers in the past two centuries 
is, indeed, cause for urgent alarm. Environmental sins against nature are many 
and diverse, well-documented and a serious threat to our continued existence. 

From the Christian perspective the ecological crisis is essentially a religious 
problem, and therefore solutions must be largely religious. Modern science and 
technology have grown out of Western Man's "Christian theology." Comfortable 
in the assurance that the earth was created for man's benefit and his dominion, 
Western Man has left an awesome record of irresponsible actions against his 
environment. 

Lynn White, Jr., in his article entitled, "The Historical Roots of Our Eco- 
logic Crisis," says that "both our present science and our present technology 
are so tinctured with orthodox Christian arrogance toward nature that no 
solution for our ecological crisis can be expected from them alone." 1 If this in- 
dictment is indeed true, then Christians have a great burden of guilt and must 
take the initiative in finding solutions to the problems. 

Programs of environmental education and activism are fine, but by them- 
selves ineffectual — for education without conviction does not produce behav- 
ioral changes; activism without faith is short-lived — nothing more than 
faddism. A change in behavior must be preceded by a change in attitude. As 
Christians we need to rethink and to restate our religious philosophy about 
man's relationship to God and nature. We need to gain a fresh understanding 
of God's creation and man's role in and dependence upon the environment. 
Christian concern should not be just for other men, but for all of God's creation. 

There are at least three basic questions or areas of concern that must be 
dealt with if we are to understand man's responsibility for the proper can? of 
God's world and man's ability to deal with his responsibility:

Science, 155:1203-1207. 



146 PORCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



(1) What is the extent of man's dominion over the earth? Is he to use 
it without regard for others and the future or does he have responsibility for 
preserving the earth? Christians believe that man has dominion over the earth 
but only as God's instrument for the expression of His providential love. There 
man must exercise God's complimentary stewardship of the earth. 

(2) To what extent is man free to decide how he will use the earth? What 
is man's attitude toward that freedom and how can his attitude be changed? 
Christians hold that man has civil freedom and spiritual "slavery" in Christ, 
both of which, either on the basis of reason or love, require him to care, to 
be concerned, and to risk failure in order to exercise proper dominion over the 
world. This is true in spite of man's apparent blindness in the realms of reason 
and spiritual matters. 

(3) What does Christ's demand for love, for example as expressed in 
situation ethics, require of Christians? We affirm that the new man in Christ is 
the incarnation of the love that God is, and he must be expressing his new nature 
in deeds that treat and make persons and environments the friends of God. 

The frontier ethic, which has dominated Western thought for centuries, is 

inadequate since it views man Gnd nature as enemies. For Christians, and indeed 

all men, a new ethic regarding the relationships between God, man and nature 

should be developed and practiced. It is obvious that we cannot Gnd should 

not continue to try to conquer nature; at best, we can only strive to live in 

harmony with God's creation. It is urgent that solutions be found soon to our 
many environmental problems. 

PURPOSES AND GOALS 

In order to achieve (1) an understanding of the extent of the environmental 
crisis, and (2) the development of a new environmental ethical code, the fol- 
lowing are four general purposes and goals toward which Christians should 
move spiritually, intellectually, attitudinally, and behaviorally: 

1. Christians should acknowledge that God is active as creator and sus- 
tainer of the whole of the physical creation. God is the Creator, and all of 
creation is good. Man is given dominion over nature, but there is a much 
stronger hint that he should not diminish or destroy the good creation of which 
he is a part. Man is utterly dependent upon God for spiritual sustenance; sim- 
ilarly, he is totally dependent upon nature for his physical and biotic survival. 
In nature we see order, beauty and purposefulness, all of which are God-like 
characteristics. Our acknowledgment of God as creator must include a reaf- 
firmation of our total commitment to the declaration, "The earth is the Lord's 
and the fulness thereof . . ." 

2. A program of awareness must be developed. The Church should utilize 
all available educational avenues for sensitizing its constituencies toward en- 
vironmental stewardship. Awareness, or change in attitude, can be obtained 
through the development of scriptural statements, parish educational materials, 
from the pulpit, in stewardship programs, and in our individual witnessing 
through our daily lives. Education about environmental problems, especially to 
the youth of the church, is essential if the necessary attitudinal and behavioral 
changes are eventually to occur. 

3. Application of our ecologicai knowledge toward environmental problems 
should be utilized in solving or eliminating undesired conditions. Behavioral 
changes necessarily follow attitudinal changes. Environmental activism is a 
characteristic to be developed in the people of God. Concerned Christians should 
get involved in community awareness programs, processes involving political 
and legal changes, and in other community activities designed specifically to- 
ward environmental restoration. Christians everywhere must be active and in- 
volved as we apply Christian stewardship principles toward the environment. 

4. Christians also need to be aiert to indicators or danger signs about 
some new environmental problems. Alertness to changes in value judgments 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 147 

on laws, bills, proposals, environmental accidents, violations, and other factors 
affecting God's creation is highly desirable. 

PROGRAMS 

A wide variety of means exists to implement these goals. The following 
are only suggestive and are, in no way, inclusive: 

1. Encourage the annual celebration of Rogate Sunday in all parishes. 

2. Encourage sermons on at least two occasions annually (i.e., Rogate 
Sunday and at Thanksgiving) to include something about God's creation, thank- 
fulness for the bounty of nature, and the beauty and order and essentiality of 
a high level of environmental integrity and quality; laymen should be used at 
every appropriate opportunity. 

3. Develop thoughtful and provocative programs to be utilized at the 
congregational, cluster, district and synodical meetings. 

4. Establish an extensive speakers' bureau to whom interested groups could 
turn for speakers. 

5. Prepare a "what-to-do" list for usage throughout the synod. 

6. Develop the themes of the environment — ecology — conservation for 
camping programs. 

7. Develop and articulate a Christian approach to effective family planning. 

8. Prepare an environmental bibliography for use by interested persons 
or groups. 

9. Utilize a number of means to sensitize the youth of the synod about 
environmental deterioration and to motivate them into appropriate actions to 
alleviate some of the problems. 

10. Organize activist groups to effect needed changes in the political, 
legal and sociological attitudes about nature. 

11. Prepare succinct informational bulletin inserts about regional, state 
or even national environmental problems. 

12. Create "emergency committees" to study and advise individuals and 
congregations about local problems as they arise. 

13. Urge local groups to work for clean air, pure water, unlettered streets, 
forests with their natural beauty intact, and a population that the state, nation 
or world can adequately clothe, feed and house. 

14. Encourage the N. C. Lutheran to report on and editorialize about 
legislation and other news items of environmental significance. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That this report be commended to every congregation in the North Caro- 
line Synod for study and implementation. 

2. That every elected and appointed committee of the N. C. Synod and its 
congregations seek out ways to implement the aforementioned goals in 
their several individual ways. 

3. That the President of Synod establish an on-going appointive committee 
known hereafter as the Committee on Environmental Concerns; the respon- 
sibilities of the committee will be to oversee and help implement the synod's 
corporate response to environmental problems now and in the future.

4. That the burget of the North Carolina Synod for 1973 include an amount 
of $1,200.00 for expenses incurred by the Committee on Environmental

Historical Work 

The Committee on Historical Work met on November 9, 1971 and February 
15, 1972. A third meeting will have been held by the time of the convention. 

The committee concentrated on the forthcoming bicentennial in 1973 of the 
coming of Adolph Nussman and John Godfrey Arndt (Johann Gottfried Arends) 
from Germany in 1773 to minister to the Lutherans in North Carolina. 

The synod at its 1970 convention was alerted to this historical event and 
approved a recommendation that special recognition be made of the event (See 
1970 Pro., p. 211). Again, at the 1971 convention, the committee called at- 
tention to this approaching event (See 1971 Pro., p. 221). 

A special sub-committee was appointed, consisting of Bernard Cruse, Chair- 
man, Dr. B. S. Brown, Secretary Wilford Lyerly, the Rev. Ernest Ridenhour, pastor 
of Organ, Salisbury, the Rev. Jack Deal, pastor of St. John, Cabarrus County, 
Miss Sarah Walker and Dr. Brown McAllister, the latter two being advisory 
members, to make appropriate plans for the celebration. Two meetings of the 
sub-committee were held on November 30, 1971, at the Church House in Salis- 
bury, and on January 13, 1972, at Lenoir Rhyne College, Hickory. 

After deliberate consideration, the sub-committee reported to the committee 
as follows: 

"That in view of the fact that the ministries of Pastors Adolph Nussman and 
John Godfrey Arndt (formerly a school teacher and later ordained a Lutheran 
pastor) embraced a substantial number of congregations of the synod, the com- 
mittee is of the opinion that it would be preferable for each of these congre- 
gations to make suitable recognition of this historical anniversary rather than 
to limit such recognition to one or two churches." 

The sub-committee recommended: 

1. That a special program be prepared for presentation at the 1973 convention 
of synod. 

2. That during 1973 congregations once served by Pastors Nussman and 
Arends be urged to arrange appropriate services commemorating this sig- 
nificant anniversary. 

3. That all congregations of the synod be asked to give recognition in some 
way to the anniversary. 

The committee approved the recommendations. 

Contacts have been mode with Lenoir Rhyne College and the Southern 
Seminary in regard to some kind of a dramatic presentation at synod and the 
preparation of a special historical sketch for general distribution at the time 
of ' the presentation. Detailed plans will be reported later. 

. A second item of importance which claimed the committee's time and at- 
tention was the recommendation adopted by the synod at its 1971 convention 
authorizing the appointment of a committee to study the possibility of publish- 
ing a book containing biographical sketches of outstanding lay leaders, including 
men and women of the North Carolina Synod. (See 1971 Pro., p. 221) 

The Committee on Historical Work was appointed as that committee. A 
sub-committee was appointed, consisting of the Rev. Earl Bodie, chairman, Dr. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 149 



J. Frank Davis and Dr. G. R. Patterson to study the problems and possibilities 
of publishing such a volume and report back to the committee. 

The sub-committee reported to the committee as follows: 

"That after due consideration given to the practicality of publishing a vol- 
ume of this kind on the basis of the scope of the work involved, that some 
2,000-3,000 persons would be eligible for inclusion in the book and the diffi- 
culty of making a fair selection, and in view of the fact that the anticipated 
volume of sales would be less than the "Life Sketches of Lutheran Ministers", 

the committee concluded 

That it would be unwise to undertake this project. 

The committee concurred with the conclusion. 

Synod's three publications, History of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina 
($3.00); Supplement to the History ($1.00); and Life Sketches of Lutheran 
Ministers ($3.00) can be secured from the Church House in Salisbury, and orders 
will be promptly filled. Please send the orders to Mrs. Jenny Roberts. 

REV. EARL K. BODIE, Chairman MR. BERNARD CRUSE 

DR. B. S. BROWN DR. G. R. PATTERSON 

DR. J. FRANK DAVIS DR. WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary 

The Committee on Credentials and Enrollment updated the statistics by re- 
porting 226 clerical delegates, 192 lay delegates, and 52 visitors. 

Pastor Thomas Ridenhour called attention of the convention to the publi- 
cation of a new book on ecology and environment by Dr. Paul Lutz. 

The Report of the Committee on Church Camping (p. 136). The floor 
committee requested Chairman David Castor of the Camp Committee to tell 
about the Harnett County site. He responded by telling of the size (554 acres), 
programs, and reasons for employing a full-time director. 

An item from the Executive Board's Report was presented at this time, 
as follows: 

1. That the Camp Committee be authorized to employ a director to be 
responsible to the Camp Committee; 

2. That the salary of the director be approved by the Executive Board and 
be paid from the budget item for the Camp Committee — Long Range 
Program. 

3. That the Camp Committee through its director be allowed to solicit 
development funds from individuals and interested congregation of the 
Synod. 

The motion was made to adopt. Since the hour for recess had come, the 
matter became unfinished business. 

It was announced that the next ballots were ready, and that voting would 
close at 2 p.m. 

The morning session was recessed with prayer by the Chaplain. 

FOURTH MEETING 

(Tuesday Afternoon, May 9, 1972 — 1:30-5:00 p.m.) 

The Memorial Service was conducted as the afternoon order. 

Chaplain Donald Woolly conducted the liturgical portion of the Service. 

Dr. Voigt R. Cromer gave the memorial sermon using as his topic "The 
Premise" based on the text, Rev. 2:10, "Be thou faithful unto death and I 
will give the a crown of life." 

Memorialized were the Rev. Carroll Noah Yount, the Rev. Robert Hugh 
Kepley, and 597 lay people who were called from the ranks of the synod since 
the last convention.

A native of Davidson County, he was born September 6, 1903, the son of 
Robert Leonard and Julia A. (Younts) Kepley. 

He received his early education in the Lexington schools. He graduated from 
Lenoir Rhyne College in 1927 with an A.B. degree, and from the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary in 1930 with a B.D. degree. 

He was married to Lois Lucille Bolick of Claremont in 1931. Surviving are 
his wife and a son, the Rev. Robert Julius Kepley, pastor of St. Philip, Raleigh.

150 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Reference and Counsel. Dr. Paul Morgan presented the recommendations of 
the committee: 

1. The Committee on Reference and Counsel recommends the following 
change in wording of the proposed new Item 5, Section III, Article 6 which 
was officially placed on notice in this morning's session: 

That the word "financial" be deleted and the word "Program" be substi- 
tuted and the "s" in the following word be capitalized. 

2. The following change in By-Laws has been proposed: 
BY-LAWS, Section VI — Operational Committees — 

1 . b. in connection with the Committee's responsibility for finding fields 

for the establishment of new mission congregations, the committee 

shall inform all the congregations within and adjacent to on area 

under consideration (omit rest of sentence and insert) "before any 

properties are purchased or type of ministry is formulated". 

Richard C. Little, Steve Moose, Evelyn Ridenhour, Max Caudill, Richard W. 

Rhyne, C. Peter Setzer, Phillip W. Deese, Floyd Sides, David L. Martin, Frank 

C. Perry, Henry McKay, Rus C. McCarter, Gene Bruce, John P. Marion, Max 

M. Hall, George L. Simmons, N. Earl Townsend. 

The Committee on Reference and Counsel offers the following substitute: 
"That By-Laws Section VI, Item 1-b be amended by deleting all of the 
words following "consideration" and inserting the following: 

"and before any properties are purchased or type of ministry is formulated 
confidential consultations with the pastors of concerned congregations shall be 
held." 

3. The following resolution was received: 

"Recognizing the concern our synod has shown for the need for social change 
and justice in our society we hereby ask that the Executive Board of synod 
take under advisement the placing of seme of our monetary funds and accounts 
in one or more of the minority banking institutions on the territory of the 
synod. We further instruct the Executive Board to report the results of that 
study and make recommendations pertaining thereto to the 1973 Convention 
of the North Carolina Synod." 

The Committee recommends this for approval. 

4. The following resolution was received: 

Because it is right and in the interest of the needs of the whole family of 
God, be it resolved: 

1. That the Evecutive Board communicate with the congregations of the 
North Carolina Synod, reminding them of the ethical demand that employees 
of congregations (sextons, secretaries, etc.) should be hired without regard to 
race or sex, and that salaries be commensurate with a living wage, certainly 
at least the minimum wage (currently $1.60 per hour). 

2. That the Synod adhere to the same basic policy in its own hiring 
practices at the Church House and in its various programs (camping, confer- 
ences, assembly, etc.). 

3. That the Executive Board likewise communicate a like policy to the 
institutions and agencies supported by the Synod. 

The Committee on Reference and Counsel has considered the resolution and 
feels that it is adequately covered by the resolution from the Stewardship 
Committee which was adopted by the convention in this morning's session of 
synod. 

Item H of the report — since it is an editorial matter, no action was 
required. 

irem 2 — the substitute was moved, and this was received as being a first 
reading notice for action on Wednesday. 

Stem 3 — Adopted. 

Irem 4 — the resolution offered on hiring policies was considered not to 
require any action in view of the adoption of an earlier statement from the 
Stewardship Committee. 

REPORT OF FLOOR COMMITTEE NO. 3 

Reports reviewed by this committee were as follows — Church Vocations, 
Southern Seminary, Lenoir Rhyne College, Campus Ministry, Continuing Edu- 
cation, Pastosr' Support, Pensions. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 151 

The report was presented by Pastor John Sigmon and Dr. James Fry, 
co-chairmen. 

1. Pastors' Support (p. 169). Chairman W. M. Lockrow made brief 
remarks on the report. Floor Committee chairman Sigmon stated that his 
section had voted to offer an upward revision from the recommended $6,800 
base salary to $7,154, a 5.5% increase allowed under federal salary guide- 
lines. Considerable discussion was ended by a motion for the previous question 
which carried. 

A voice vote seemed not to be decisive, resulting in a call for a division. 

The result was a count of 186 for and 100 against the adoption of the 
$7,154 base salary figure. 

Dr. John Yost, Jr. moved that the Executive Board in consultation with 
Pastors' Support Committee be authorized to study constitutional changes ne- 
cessary and the cost involved in making possible a guaranteed minimum salary 
for pastors. ADOPTED. 

The question of what was to happen to the graduated salary schedule pro- 
posed as a part of the Pastors' Support Committee (p. 126) was answered 
that it would be involved in the whole question of the guaranteed salary study. 

By common consent, a twenty minute extension for the floor committee's 
report was granted. 

Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (p. 154). The floor committee 
called on Dr. H. George Anderson, President of the Seminary, to make com- 
ments. Dr. Anderson termed North Carolina "a superlative synod", offering 
faculty, students in larger numbers, larger financial support, and more student 
body leadership, as well as real contribution to the development program. He 
announced the Jacob L. Morgan Lectureship series which initially opens with 
Dr. Helmut Thielicke speaking on Sept. 13-14, 1972. He announced that plans 
are underway for the capital funds appeal, which will be culminated in early 
1973. 

Lenoir Rhyne College (p. 1 58). Dr. Raymond M. Bost read the resolution 
in honor of Dr. Harry Edgar Isenhour conveyed to the synod by the college 
board (p. 159). 

Dr. Wallace Jorgenson, chairman of the College Board, thanked the synod 
for its continued support through financing and sending students. He voiced 
appreciation of O. Leonard Moretz's leadership in obtaining development funds. 

Pensions (p. 171). Chairman Paul Moose was asked by the floor committee 
to bring a report on the work of his committee, with the request for ending 
the functions of this appointed committee. The resolution will be acted upon on 
Wednesday in connection with by-laws changes. 

The floor committee called attention of the convention to the following: 

Report of Committee on Church Vocations (p. 151). 

Report of Committee on Campus Ministry (p. 166). 

Report of Committee on Continuing Education (p. 168). 

Pastor Robert Walker asked for the personal privilege of stressing need of 
local congregations to keep accurate student addresses to campus contact pastors. 

Church Vocations 

The Committee on Church Vocations held four meetings since the last 
convention of synod: August 17, 1971 at the Church House; October 25-26 
1971 at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Columbia, S. C; November 
9-10, 1971 at Lenoir Rhyne College; and December 28, 1971 at the Church 
House. 

In addition to attending to the business affairs of the committee, we had 
the opportunity to meet and counsel with students. At the meeting at the 
Southern Seminary, Lenoir Rhyne College and Church House (Dec. 28) the 
students and their wives joined with the committee in a fellowship dinner. They 
shared with us their hopes and aspirations. It was good to see their viewpoint 
and share their experiences. 

Dr. Ronald B. Simono, Professor of Psychology at UNC, Charlotte, has been 
employed as Synod Psychologist with the full approval of the Board of College 
Education and Church Vocations of the Lutheran Church in America.

In addition to the students listed, there are quite a number that have been

ration are in the process of being completed, and others who have expressed 
an interest in a church vocation who have not yet filed an application. These 
students are being followed up by members of the committee. 

We would like to thank North Carolina Lutheran Men for assistance to 
seminary students during the year, as well as to all others who have rendered

financial aid. This has been a real boost to our work and has eased many 
financial burdens that were beyond what we were able to do through our budget. 
Again we urge pastors and church leaders to seek out and encourage young 
people to consider the challenge of a church vocation and send these names 
to the chairman of the committee.

1972 REPORT 
THE SOUL OF THE SEMINARY 

John of Salisbury, writing eight centuries ago, compared the society of his 
day to a human body. Each class of men — farmers, princes, soldiers, trades- 
men and clergy • — - represented c part of the total organism. John suggested 
that those who "preside over the practice of religion" be considered the soul 
of the body politic. Translated into the microcosm of our seminary, the analogy 
would put the faculty in that crucial role. The professors make the difference 
between a warm, ardent seminary and a coldly impersonal institution of learn- 
ing. This year's report to our supporting synods will focus on faculty — the 
"soul of the seminary." 

GUESTS AND GROWTH 

During the past ccademic year, we have had nine full-time faculty mem- 
bers, assisted by six other part-time professors. Two of them are named "guest 
lecturers" because they teach one or two courses on a part-time basis. Our 
guest lecturers for the first two quarters of the 1971-72 academic year are 
Dr. Francis Fesperman, Chairman of the Religion Department at Newberry Col- 
lege, who has taught courses for us in Greek and in New Testament History; 
and President Emeritus F. Eppling Reinartz, who taught a course in "The 
Leadership of Worship" for all first-year students. 

Guest lecturers for the previous academic year included professors from 
Columbia College, the University of South Carolina, and Claflin College. 

Scott Hampton Hendrix, D.Theol., joined the faculty as Assistant Professor 
of Church History, in September. Dr. Hendrix, a 1967 alumnus of the seminary, 
distinguished himself in Reformation Studies at Tubingen University, which 
awarded him the doctorate magna cum laude. His dissertation, Ecclesia in Via: 
Ecclesiological Develocments in the Medieval Psalm Exegesis and the Dictate 
super Psalterium (1513-1515) of Martin Luther, will be published by Brill in 
its series "Studies in Medieval and Reformation Thought." 

A far-sighted faculty improvement program initiated nearly a decade ago 
by the Board of Trustees has enabled five faculty members to complete doctoral 
studies while teaching at the seminary. The latest Ph.D.'s have been awarded 
to Professor James Stroud Aull (Duke, Old Testament) and Professor Austin 
Focht Shell (Boston University, Pastoral Care). This brings the total number of 
earned doctorates on our regular faculty to seven. Faculty salaries, too, have 
been systematically raised until they currently equal or surpass averages for 
LCA seminaries. 

READING, WRITING AND RELEVANCE 

The faculty are deeply involved in efforts to improve the learning process, 
so that our graduates will be well prepared for the exacting tasks of ministry. 
In addition, faculty members spend substantial amounts of time in the prepar- 
ation of materials to serve the Church and its members. "Pure research" is 
secondary to their major effort in making their study relevant to the needs of 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 155 

students and pGStors. Few people benefit from an article, for example, on "The 
European Phase of John Ulrich Giessendanner's Life"; many can learn from 
a well-researched lecture or paper on some issue facing the contemporary church. 

Here are some samples of faculty contributions during the last year: Dr. 
James S. Aull completed a doctoral dissertation, Obey My Voice, which is a 
study of the Book of Jeremiah. He has also been asked to read a paper for the 
prestigious Society of Biblical Literature In the meantime he is utilizing his 
insights on Jeremiah as background for work on change with a pastor's group 
in Atlanta. Professor Gordon Beaver's skill on the organ benefits the seminary 
daily and directly through our chapel services. He has also directed the seminary 
choir, given public recitals, and composed music for portions of the liturgical 
service. Dr. J. Benjamin Bedenbaugh was Bible Study leader for the national 
convention of the Lutheran Church Women; he is at present working on a 
cassette tape presentation on Modern Music and the Gospel which will be made 
available to pastors through a subscription service. Dr. Richard Bland led pastors 
at the Virginia Synod's Summer Assembly in a study of contemporary theological 
options and later presented material on "The Prophetic Tradition" to the Synod's 
Pastors' Retreat. Dr. Arnold Carlson has been instrumental in opening the 
Seminary's eyes to areas of service to minority groups in the Columbia area. 
Librarian W. Richard Fritz completed his pioneering study of early Lutheran 
settlement in South Carolina and then assisted the South Carolina Synod in 
preparing the bibliography and index to its Historical Volume. Dr. Richard 
Hoefler, after presenting a major address to the Carolinas' Evangelism Confer- 
ence this year, has made a cassette recording on sermonic helps for pastors. 
Dr. Obert Kempson, who is a part-time professor in the field of Pastoral Care, 
served as a member of the boards of three major national agencies in the area 
of Education and Mental Health. Professor Harold Park presented lectures on 
the theological bases for parish renewal to the Pastors' Convocation of the 
Indiana-Kentucky Synod. Dr. George Frederick Schott's address to a conference 
on drug education has been duDlicated and distributed through the University 
of North Carolina. Dr. Austin Shell, in addition to comoleting his dissertation 
on Certain Aspects of Lutheran Pastors' Ministry to the Dying, has assisted 
pastors in the Atlanta area in utilizing insights gained from his research in 
their work with members involved in grief experiences. 

When asked why they are so actively involved in these many areas of serv- 
ice, faculty members respond with answers that shun any hint of the "ivory 
tower" perspective. "I need the contact with real issues to keeD my teaching 
sharp and my study focussed," says one professor. Another reolied that he felt 
he wanted to "participate at all levels of the church's life, from the local parish 
to the national scene" — and he proves it by servina on the council of h>s 
congregation. "I want to show that contemporary theoloay can be a resource 
to the church in facing its problems and opportunities," commented a third 
professor. These perspectives show that the faculty sees its dutv to the students 
fulfilled in a life of active participation in the life of the church. 

SPOTLIGHT ON CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Seminary involvement in the continuing education of pastors has been 
intensified through several significant actions during the past year. The Luth- 
eran Brotherhood Insurance Company agreed to sponsor scholarships for pastors 
to participate in our "Seminary Where You Are" proiect. The Cannon Found- 
ation provided a gift of $25,000 to improve our continuing education program 
through full-time staff. On the basis of this grant, the seminary has called the 
Rev. Martin Fredrick Saarinen, former assistant to the president of the Ohio 
Synod, to become our first Director of Continuing Education. In addition to 
holding a Master's degree in Educational Administration, Pastor Saarinen brings 
us experience in Reuel Howe's Institute for Advanced Pastoral Studies and in a 
variety of learning designs for clergymen. As a former parish pastor and district 
dean, he has first-hand knowledge of the pressures upon a pastor's time. He is 
already engaged in planning continuing education opportunities for the next 
academic year. 

BUILDING ON THE FOUNDATIONS 

The Continuing Education program is but one phase of our comprehensive 
planning for the seventies. Other phases of the program are either assured or 



156 



PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



in the phase of advanced negotiation. A new library has been under-written by 
a private foundation in North Carolina; and five additional student apartments 
were added last year. We hope to announce an endowed lectureship and an 
endowed professorship within the next months. Each of these substantial con- 
tributions fits into a planned segment of our strategy for expanded programs ond 
services to the church. Together they will form the foundation for our coming 
appeal to the congregations of this and other supporting synods in early 1973. 

IMPROVED MANAGEMENT 

Attached to this report is the financial statement for 1971. It will indicate 
both our absolute dependence on the annual support of our synods, and our 
determination to maintcin a program within our means. An effective step 
toward better management was the appointment of an Administrative Assistant 
in January- Dr. James S. Aull, the appointee, has already improved our records, 
bookkeeping, and purchasing procedures. He works closely with Seminary Treas- 
urer, N. E. Derrick, whose report follows. Our thanks are again due to Mr. 
Derrick for his watchful shepherding of seminary funds. 

!n our mutual activity of tecching, learning, writing and worshipping we 
have discovered how "the whole body, fitly joined together" derives its strength 
from Christ and builds itself up in love.

Lenoir Rhyne College 



Lenoir Rhyne College has been richly blessed in its 81st year. A significantly 
revised academic program is demonstrating its effectiveness, and continuing 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 159 



efforts to enlarge the financial resources of the College are meeting with en- 
couraging response. 

Governing and Advisory Boards: The Board of Trustees held two regular 
and one called meeting during the past year. Trustees gave generously of their 
time to the work of the Board s several committees. The College suffered the loss 
of three distinguished trustees in the course of the year. Mr. Thomas Borland of 
Salisbury found it necessary to resign from the Board early in 1972. Glenn E. 
Ketner, D.C.S., also of Salisbury, found it necessary to resign from the Board 
shortly after the last convention cf synod. Elected to membership on the Board 
in 1953, Dr. Ketner rendered valued service on the Committees on Finance & 
Investment and Building & Grounds. During his eighteen years as a trustee, he 
played a strong leadership role in the College's capital funds campaigns, serving 
as co-chairman of the 1955 campaign Gnd as general chairman of the "Fund for 
Progress" campaign in 1963. In December the Board suffered the loss of A. Alex 
Shuford, Jr. of Hickory. Elected a trustee at the last convention of synod, Mr. 
Shuford's illness which was to terminate in death precluded his attending the 
fall meeting of the Board. Already recognized as a major benefactor of the 
College through the generosity of the Shuford family in providing the College 
with a gymnasium, Mr. Shuford was concerned that Cline Gymnasium, erected 
in 1923, be replaced with modern facilities for instruction in health and physical 
education. In his will Mr. Shuford established a $500,000 challenge gift which 
must be matched in six months. The resultant sum will provide the major 
portion of the cost of the new facility. 

With his typical concern for the efficient operation of the Board, Chairman 
Harry E. Isenhour declined re-election as chairman in 1971 in order that he 
might be available during his last year as trustee to assist his successor in 
that important post. Dr. Isenhour was elected a trustee in 1929 and served 
until 1934. In 1936 he returned to the Board and has served continuously as 
a trustee since that date. From 1951 until 1971 he was chairman of the 
Board, always giving generously of himself to his responsibility. The Board of 
Trustees, in recognizing the longevity and quality of service rendered by its 
retiring chairman, adopted the following resolution: 

"WHEREAS, It has been the good fortune of the Board of Trustees of 
Lenoir Rhyne College to enjoy the uninterrupted service of its chairman, Hcrry 
Edgar Isenhour, since his election to that office in 1950; and 

"WHEREAS, In serving as the Board's chairman, he has given unstintingly 
of his time, energy, and wisdom to advance the best interests of the College 
through this Board; and 

"WHEREAS, The services of the Board's chairman contributed significantly 
to the notable development of the College's facilities and to the important shift 
in concern from facilities to a strengthening of the academic program; be it 
therefore 

"RESOLVED, That, in gratitude to God for the contribution of His servant, 
Harry Edgar Isenhour, to the work of this Board of Trustees while serving as 
its chairman, this Board now instruct the President of the College to convey 
to the next convention of the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church 
in America its appreciation for the services of the retiring Board chairman." 

Current officers of the Board of Trustees are Wallcce J. Jorgenson, L.H.D., 
chairman; Robert R. Rhyne, Sr., vice chairman; the Reverend Albert H. Keck, 
Jr., D.D., secretary; O. Leonard Moretz, LL.D., treasurer; and the Reverend Paul 
L. Morgan, D.D., assistant secretary. 

The Development Board held two meetings during the past year. A major 
portion of each meeting was devoted to bringing Development Board members 
up to date on what is taking place at the College, particularly as related to 
program, facilities, and resources. This past year the Board also reviewed its 
own structure and functioning, and proposed revisions in its Rules of Procedure. 
These revisions relate to the length of terms for members and officers, to 
committee structure, and to concurrent service on the Development Board and 
the Board of Trustees. 

Persons who have been added to the membership of the Development Board 
include Mr. A. Harry Burgess, Sr., Hickory; Mr. Robert E. Cline, Hickory; Mr. 
D. Vernon Deal, North Wilkesboro; Mr. E. F. Gallagher, Gastonia; Mr. Robert 
L. McKaughn, Jr., Hickory; and Mr. Joe G. Rutledge, Salisbury. Mr. Clarence 



160 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Pugh, president of the Alumni Association, is an ex officio member of the 
Board. 

Current officers of the Development Board are Mr. Robert McKericher of 
Charlotte, chairman; Mr. Petro Kulynych, Wilkesboro, vice chairman; and tAr. 
Jeff L. Norris of the college staff, secretary. 

Student Statistics: There were 1,395 students enrolled in the fall semester, 
671 men and 724 women. For the spring semester, registrations total approx- 
imately 1,325. Of those students accepted for the fall term, a larger percentage 
than usual actually presented themselves for registration at the start of the 
academic year. This accounts for the fact that the enrollment is somewhat 
larger than the 1,341 who registered the previous fali. The positive response 
of high scnool seniors to Lenoir Rhyne's new core curriculum and 4-1-4 cal- 
endar, coupled with the continuing efforts of the admissions staff under the 
able leadership of Mr. Richard P. Thompson, contributes to the appreciable in- 
crease in applications for admission to the College. Competition for the avail- 
able spaces for young women who wish to live on campus grows increasingly 
keen. Students who wish to enroll at Lenoir Rhyne for the 1973-74 term should 
file applications with the Director of Admissions promptly, in any event not 
later than January 15, 1973. 

The 1971 Summer School enrolled 813 students in its two terms. The 
summer program serves three groups — our own students, students from other 
colleges and universities who wish to take work at Lenoir Rhyne during the 
summer, and public school teachers who wish to renew their teaching certif- 
icates. The first two groups remain fairly constant in number, but the last 
group is declining somewhat due to recent changes in requirements for certi- 
fication renewal. 

Lenoir Rhyne awarded 315 bachelor's degrees in 1971. On May 31, 253 
degrees were awarded, and 62 additional degrees were conferred at the summer 
graduation on August 20. 

Staff: Since the last convention of synod, the College has again had occas- 
ion to publicly recognize members of its staff for longevity of service. Those 
recognized for the completion of twenty-five years as members of the faculty 
were Thomas Henry Blackburn, professor of Mathematics; Ralph Henry Lyerly, 
associate professor of English; Miss Thelma Rast, associate professor of AAusic; 
the Reverend Dorus Paul Rudisill, Ph.D., professor of Religion and Philosophy; 
and William Dula Tuttle, assistant Professor of Geography. Persons recognized 
as having retired in 1970-71, after extended periods of service, included Mr. 
Everett J. Sox and Miss Helen M. Stahler. 

In the fall of 1971 the Dean of Students, William M. Ma Hoy, Ph.D., re- 
signed in order to accept a position at Marshall University. He had served 
Lenoir Rhyne since 1968. On November 1, Donald Gray Hayes, Ph.D., was 
ncmed Dean of Students. Dr. Hayes is a graduate of Wake Forest University 
and holds the doctorcte from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

The Board of World Missions, LCA, has co-operated with the College in 
adding important dimensions to the January Interim. This year's Interim in- 
cluded on its staff the Reverend David J. Hoh, M.A., Missionary to Japan, who 
offered a course on Japanese life and culture. His presence at the College made 
it possible for him to give presentations concerning his work to a number of 
congregations and groups in the greater Hickory area. 

The Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation has continued to provide the 
College with an Administrative Intern. This year's Intern is Mr. John C. Mer- 
son, M.B.A., who serves as Student Financial Aid Officer and assists in admissions. 

Covenant: As reported last year (Minutes, page 157) a special committee, 
appointed by the president of synod and the chairman of the Board of Trustees, 
has been at work on a statement or covenant that will reflect the way in which 
the College and the Synod presently understand their relationship to each other. 
At the October meeting of the Board the Reverend George R. Whittecar, D.D., 
presented to the Board the committee's report. The Board was enthusiastic in 
its adoption of the proposed covenant, and trusts that the synod will see fit at 
this convention to accord the covenant similar endorsement. 

Accreditation and Recognition: In the United States, institutions of higher 
learning are recognized as meeting at least minimum standards in providing 
quality educational programs through a process called accreditation which is 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 161 



carried out through regional agencies. In 1928 Lenoir Rhyne was first admitted 
to membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and from 
time to time (currently every ten years) the College must apply for the renewal 
of its accreditation. This involves preparing a detailed study of every aspect of 
the College's operation. This study is carefully reviewed by a committee of 
educators, named by the Southern Association, who visit the campus to examine 
at firsthand the operation of the College and to determine if the institution 
has accurately reported on its program in the self-study. During the 1970-71 
term Lenoir Rhyne engaged in such a self-study, and early in the 1971-72 
year a team of educators visited the College on behalf of the Southern Asso- 
ciation. The report of the visitors is now in preparation and will be received 
and acted upon by the Southern Association at its annual meeting this fall. 

When the Lutheran Church in America was formed, its Board of College 
Education and Church Vocations was charged with the responsibility of develop- 
ing appropriate standards for the colleges of the Church and according them 
recognition ond official standing as colleges of the LCA. The Board of College 
Education, in carrying out this responsibility, sends teams of Lutheran educat- 
ors to visit and evaluate the colleges. Lenoir Rhyne received its first such visit 
in January of this year. While concerned about the quality of the academic 
program offered in the name of the Church, the visiting teams are even more 
concerned to discover the ways in which the College reflects in its life and 
program its identification with the Christian community. The churchmen who 
visited Lenoir Rhyne will submit their report on Lenoir Rhyne to the Board of 
College Education and Church Vocations which will act upon the report this 
year. 

Strategy for the Seventies: Goals adopted by the Board of Trustees for the 
strengthening of the College are being implemented as rapidly as resources 
permit. Progress is clearly evident in providing more adequate compensation 
for the faculty. Scholarship and loan resources for students are being helpfully 
expanded. The academic program is subject to continuing study and evaluation 
in a persistent effort to enhance the quality of instruction. 

The Board of Trustees and its Committee on Buildings and Grounds have 
given careful attention to a number of the recommendations of Dr. Orville Dahl, 
educational planning consultant, who recently prepared a long-range program 
for campus development. Several projects have been aDDroved. These include 
the replacement of Cline Gymnasium with modern facilities for instruction in 
health and physical education, a fine arts center including a drama workshop, 
and a Harvard house-type living unit for students. The Boord has also author- 
ized extensive renovation of Rhyne Building and Mauney Hall. These projects 
will be undertaken as financial resources permit. 

The College has recently acquired a retreat site and conference center 

through a long-term lease. The camp, which is located on Lake James near 

Marion, will be a useful resource for the instructional as well as the co-curricular 
program of the College. 

Financial resources are the key factor in implementing most aspects of the 
"Strategy for the Seventies." The Catawba Valley campaign provoked a gen- 
erous response from those areas near the College which have traditionally sup- 
ported the College so helpfully. The next phase of the financial campaign is 
concentrated on the 12,000 alumni of the College. Early this year, college of- 
ficials held a series of meetings with alumni in more than thirty different cities 
to enlist their support for the program. Alumni are being asked to concentrate 
their efforts on increcsed supDOrt for the Loyalty Fund, an annual giving pro- 
gram which in 1971 passed the $100,000 mark. Monies received through the 
Loyalty Fund are turned over to the College by the Alumni Association to be 
used as the College sees fit. 

Financial Report: The annual financial report covering the twelve-month 
period which ended with June 30, 1971 (see below) again invites thanksgiving. 
Substantial increases in total income and total assets reflect the growing impact 



162 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

of the campaign for funds to implement the "Strategy for the Seventies." Even 
though the total assets of the College increased by $925,693.85 last year, it 
must be kept in mind that much of that total consists of pledges to projects 
of a capital nature. While strengthening the College, such commitments often 
affect but slightly the Current Fund which is the College's day to day operating 
account. Despite the fact that the Current Fund had an income of $2,422,132.39 
last year, it ended the year with a balance of only $1,049.11. That balance 
would not have been possible except for the strong support of the synod in 
providing a substantial portion of the amount budgeted for its institutions and 
also providing special assistance from the earnings of the Michael Peeler Fund 
for the College's program of upgrading faculty salaries. 

Concern is sometimes expressed about the frequent necessity for adjusting 
upward the charges made for tuition at the College. Such concern is appropriate 
because of the desire of the Church to have its institutions serve persons from 
diverse social and economic backgrounds. It is instructive to see the position of 
Lenoir Rhyne in these matters as compared to that of other similar schools. 
For example, in a listing of total cost to the student (tuition, fees, room, and 
board) in 1971-72, Lenoir Rhyne remains among the least expensive of the 
four-year colleges affiliated with the LCA. 

Wittenberg University $3,456 

Muhlenberg College 3,300 

Augustcna College 3,123 

Carthage College 2,936 

Roanoke College 2,800 

Newberry College 2,390 

Lenoir Rhyne College 2,091 

Midland College 2,030 

In North Carolina, colleges having a larger total cost to the student than 
Lenoir Rhyne include Pfeiffer, High Point, Greensboro, Methodist, Catawba, 
Guilford, and Saint Andrew's, as well as Duke and Davidson. 

In an effort to further strengthen the College, while keeping the cost of its 
program to the student as modest as possible, continuing efforts are being made 
to enlist support from business firms and foundations. Last year the College 
received $5,000 from the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, $25,000 from the 
Cannon Foundation, end a $30,000 commitment from Burlington Industries 
Foundation. An annual solicitation of business firms and industries through the 
North Carolina Foundation of Church-Related Colleges produced $31,641.07 for 
Lenoir Rhyne last year. 

Estate planning is playing an increasingly important ro'e in the developing 
of financial support for the College. The thoughtfulness of Mrs. Ellender Pra- 
ther Lynch, an alumna, is instructive. The College recently learned that Mrs. 
Lynch provided in her will that her estate should be used to create a trust, the 
income from which will go to certain relatives during their lifetime, but will 
be regularly remitted to the College following their deaths. In thus making 
appropriate provision for both her loved ones and her college, Mrs. Lynch 
demonstrates how Christian stewardship can extend even beyond the grave and 
provide blessings for succeeding generations.

LENOIR RHYNE COLLEGE 

Hickory, North Carolina 

REPORT ON 

EXAMINATION OF ACCOUNTS 

Year ended June 30, T971 

To the Board of Trustees of 
Lenoir Rhyne College: 

We have examined the balance sheet of Lenoir Rhyne College, Hickory, 
North Carolina, as of June 30, 1971, and the related operating statement of 
income and expenditures, changes in fund balances and changes in financial 
position for the year then ended. Our examination was made in accordance with 
generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of 
the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered 
necessary in the circumstances. 

In accordance with practices followed by nonprofit educational institutions, 
no provision has been made for depreciation of educational plant. 

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet, statements of operations, 
changes in fund balances and changes in financial position present fairly the 
financial position of Lenoir Rhyne College at June 30, 1971, and the results 
of its operations for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting pract- 
ices generally followed by educationcl institutions applied on a consistent basis 
for the preceding year.

Campus Ministry 



Your Campus Ministry Committee is concerned to provide a ministry to 
Lutheran students attending non-Lutheran institutions. Campus ministers have 
been at non-Lutheran schools for decades. 220 of them now serve full-time and 
about 1,500 part-time in this vital work. The campus minister leads worship, 
teaches and preaches the Gospel, and helps the troubled, whether student, 
faculty or staff. The church stands by a youthful generation as it confronts 
the problems of our society. Students are demanding these days. They want to 
know how their Christian commitment affects human relationships and social 
problems. Commuter campuses and junior colleges also pose new challenges. 
And more and more students are coming, on all kinds of campuses. 

"Ministry, specifically applied to higher education, is a means by which a 
serving church expresses love and concern for people in the midst of college 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 167 

and university work and there acts in obedience to the Lord's command to 
announce the great possibilities inherent in redemption. 

"The objective of the church's ministry is the broad work of evangelism 
so that within the university the Gospel is proclaimed, the unbaptized are con- 
fronted, and the baptized are nurrured in faith and stimulated to their vocation 
in Jesus Christ in daily life and work. 

"This ministry will be sacramental in character, meaning that it extends 
the means of grace and celebrates God's creating and sustaining presence in 
the midst of the university. 

"This ministry will be pastoral in charccter, meaning that campus ministers 
live helpfully among campus citizens both caring for persons and arranging for 
such care." (quoted from National Luthern Campus Ministry, "Statement of 
Purpose".) 

In an effort to try and achieve this purpose your committee has attempted 
to assist campus and contact pastors in fulfilling this ministry. A Contact Past- 
ors' Conference for pastors in North and South Carolina was held at Grace, 
Rock Hill, S. C, April 11-12, 1972. A Lutheran Student Association retreat 
was held April 7-9, 1972 at Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Club Center, Reidsville, N. C. 

We are grateful to have the Rev. Robert Walker, Southeastern Regional 
Director NLCM, back on the field after a year's study leave working toward 
a doctorate. He provides direction and leadership which is most valuable to 
this committee. 

The LCM Corporation of Mecklenburg County is unique in that it is a 
tri-Lutheran agency involving the American Lutheran Church, the Lutheran 
Church — Missouri Synod, and the Lutheran Church in America. Its staff is 
composed of five Contact Pastors. The by-laws of the corporation have been 
approved by the Standing Committee of the Department of Campus Ministry, 
Division of Educational Services, LCUSA as a prototype document that can be 
used in the establishment of other tri-Lutheran agencies elsewhere in the country. 

Your committee held two meetings since the last meeting of synod. In the 
fall we met at Grace, Boone meeting with students from Appalachian State 
University and dialoging with them and contact pastor, David Keck. A second 
meeting was held in January of this year at the synod office. This meeting 
primarily concerned itself with budget requests and review of how campus 
funds are being used. 

Financial aid to those requesting assistance from the committee during 
1972 is as follows: 

Institution Grant 

LCM in Central North Carolina $18,200

Continuing Education 



The Committee on Continuing Education for Ministers has held two meet- 
ings since the last Convention of synod. The committee has encouraged the 
development of programs in North Carolina and continues to gather information 
relating to continuing educational opportunities. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 169 



The committee provided some assistance for the following: 
The Reverend Henry McKay 
The Reverend David L. Martin 
The development of programs of particular interest to ministers in North 
Carolina continues. Plans are now underway at Lenoir Rhyne to offer courses 
and programs relevant to continuing education for ministers during the Summer 
and January Interim periods. Other programs utilizing the staff of the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary are under consideration.

Pastors' Support 

The Committee on Pastors' Support has met five times since the last reported 
meeting of April 19, 1971: 

April 29 — Subcommittee 

May 15 — Special Convention Meeting 

June 21 — Called Meeting 

August 25 — Training Session 

January 18 — Regular Meeting 

A letter was sent to each delegate from congregations not meeting the 
minimum base salary for 1971. This letter pointed up the urgency of attending 
the luncheon at the synodica! meeting so that the full program for meeting 
the pastor's minimum base salary could be passed on to each congregation. 

The following program was presented: 

1. General Introduction of purpose and members of the Committee — by 
Chairman Ridenhour. 

2. Reading and brief explanation of Base (Net) Salary definition (page 208, 
1968 Minutes of Synod) — by Wallace Gee. 

3. Presentation and discussion on "An Aid for Determining Pastor's Base (Net) 
Salary" — by Conrad Wessell. 

4. Presentation of a statistical Report on Salaries in North Carolina — by 
Dr. G. A. Palmer (prepared by Mr. Lockrow). 

5. Presentation of the Plans to Supplement- the Pastor's Salary (pp 256f — 
Items A-l, 1969 Minutes of Synod) by Mrs. Dorothy Fisher. 

6. How delegates and/or congregations may secure the services of the 
Committee. 

(a) Committee members would like to meet with Finance and Stewardship 

Committees of each congregation; 

(b) Delegates should arrange meeting between August 25 and September 

15 — by Paul Rhyne. 

7. General questions and discussion — by Conrad Wessell. 

At the called meeting of June 21, 1971, at the Church House, a program 
was established for a training session held on August 25, 1971. 

A training session, chaired by Rev. Ernest Ridenhour, was attended by 
committee, members and fourteen lay delegates. The program of the May con- 
vention was presented. Dr. Whittecar sent a letter to all lay chairmen 
of the council and pastors where the congregations were not meeting the syn- 
odical minimum salary. It was stated in the letter that a call would be received 
from the area delegate, who had attended the training session, for an appoint- 
ment to visit the congregation and assist them in the preparation of their budget.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Over fifty congregations were contacted and/or visited by members of this 
committee. Lay representatives are still available to those who have not made 
requests for this opportunity. 

The following statistical report gives an incomplete picture of the whole 
synod, because not all pastors will submit a report and in other cases there are 
vacancies. In cddition to the 124 reports tabulated below there were three 
other reports dealing with special pastoral situations.

The committee notes that the largest cause of salaries falling below the 
base is the matter of inadequate automobile allowances to the Dastors. 

RECOMMENDATION 

Teh Committee on Pastors' Support recommends: 
That the minimum base salary of $6,800 be continued for 1973; 
That it will be on the basis of the above figure that the subsidization plan 
of synod will be calculated; and 

That the following schedule be considered as minimum goals for base salary:

Pensions 

The Committee on Pensions met at the Church House in Salisbury on Jan. 
21, 1972. Dr. Whittecar met with the committee. 

Here is information from the Board of Pensions that will be of interest to 
the ministers of the N. C. Synod: There are 210 active members in the Min- 
isterial Pension and Death Benefit Plan. The Board of Pensions Ministerial 
Health Benefits Plan covers 210 members and 186 dependent units. During 
1971 — Health Benefits paid, $53,489.27. No benefits under the Ministerial 
Short-term Disability Income Benefit Plan were paid. Total pensioners in the 
North Carolina Synod is 80. A breakdown of those receiving pensions would be: 
ministers 38, widows 37, children 5. During 1971 — Lump-sum death benefits 
paid, $4,100. 

Dr. Whittecar spoke of the work of the committee and the little work it 
has to do. Since the Pension Board has direct contact with all the pastors and 
at the suggestion of the President of Synod, the Committee on Pensions recom- 
mends to the synod, that the by-laws of the synod, which establish the Com- 
mittee on Pensions be amended by being stricken and that the functions of 
counseling with ministers relative to pension matters be left in the office of 
the President.

North Carolina Council of Churches Assembly 

Pastor Karl Park, chairman, presented the report of the delegates of the 
North Carolina Council of Churches assembly as follows: 

"The operation of the North Carolina Council of Churches could be called 
'Mission Impossible' had it not been for the help of God and some of His most 
mature ond dedicated people during the past year . . . With a Gideon's band 
of a few the Council has been carrying the ecumenical banner in the struggle 
for faith, righteousness, and justice in North Carolina." Thus begins the report 
which Dr. Samuel S. Wiley, Executive Director of the N. C. Council of Churches, 
presented to the delegates at the thirty-fifth Annual Assembly held in the 
University Methodist and University Baptist Churches in Chapel Hill on May 
1-2, 1972. The Church Women United held their convention in the Binkley 
Memorial Baptist Church on May 1 following a Fellowship Dinner in the Uni- 
versity Baptist Church on the evening of April 30. 

Dr. Wiley's report tells of the opportunities and the liabilities which faced 
the Council during the past year, as well as the work accomplished. It said, 
"We have had to resist the temptation, with the whole spectrum of challenge 
before us, to attempt too much. With a staff of four people, one of whom is 
half-time (not including the Migrant Project) we necessarily have limited our- 
selves to timely priorities." 

"It is immensely heartening to see that the annual giving of the Council's 
member bodies has increased . . . This very favorable development, however, 
has been more then matched by the demands of inflation and a growing pro- 
gram. The request of the Council of each of its member bodies continues to 
be only 1/10 of 1% of each group's annual giving to current expenses and 
benevolences, excluding capital building funds. In 1971 such allocations should 
have produced over $61,000 instead of $35,000 thus requiring special efforts 
to raise $9,400 from individual churches and donors. The skeletal budget for 
1972 will still require 'additional funds' from these special sources." 



172 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The report states that the reorganization of two years ago has begun to 
take effect and the results becoming apparent in the work accomplished by the 
various Commissions. The idea of "Shared Staff" has been very effective in the 
Ccmmissicn on Christian Nurture and, to a lesser degree, in the other Com- 
missions. The intention is to involve the key people from member judicatories 
in the work in each program area. 

Through the Commission of Social Ministries, Collins Kilburn and Otis 
Hairston are doing great things. The recent Church and Community Seminar 
on "Politics and the Church" wcs excellent for program. Splendid responses 
are being made in the fields of corrections and criminal justice and of welfare 
reforms. The Migrant Project is broadening under the direction of William 
Shipes. 

The report states "John Cobb has given intelligent and faithful leadership 
to the Commission on Christian Nurture. Among the priorities there the chief 
ones are child care, youth hostels, aging, leadership training, and family life." 

"James Riddle is giving imaginative guidance to the Commission of Christian 
Unity in a time when some people in the churches challenge not only councils 
of churches but all organization of religion. Strong emphasis on local ecumenism 
is urged — it must be local in order to be real. This commission in connection 
with its interest in Faith and Order, is projecting one or more local pilot con- 
ferences this year of polarization in church and community." 

Other programs carried out by the Council are the Pastors' Conference which 
had as its theme this year "How to be God's Man without Playing God", the 
Advisory Conference, THE CHURCH COUNCIL BULLETIN, the Church World 
Service Clothing Appeal in North Carolina, and the Migrant Ministry. 

Evangelism people from the member judicatories have been called together 
to discuss "KEY '73", resulting in plans for continuing state-wide strategy in 
preparation for next year. This will be brought directly under the Executive 
Board as a particular concern of the Council through 1972 and '73 with the 
expectation that strong,, varied, and continuing cooperative outreach will be 
in the churches' cgenda at the beginning of 1974. 

In addition to acting on the reports of the Staff and Commissions, the 
Assembly adopted a budget for 1973 of $63,909, and a projected budget for 
1974 of $66,199; elecfed the Rev. Charles E. Dietze as successor to Dr. James 
H. Lightbourne as President; adopted statements and resolutions on Taxes and 
Hurncn Needs in N. C; Welfare Reform; Housing for Migrant Workers; and 
on Schools and Desegregation. The Richard Shelton Communications Award 
was presented to THE CHARLOTTE NEWS, and the Distinguished Service 
Award was presented to Dr. Thomas Collins. 

The North Carolina Council of Churches provides the churches of North 
Carolina their major agency for co-operative fellowship and service. We are 
grateful for its ministry and urge continued support of the Council. 

REV. KARL PARK ... for the delegates 

The Rev. Collins Kilburn, Secretary of the Council's Social Concerns Com- 
mittee, shared the fundamental pre-suppositions of his work: 

(1) The most important Christian Witness is caring for persons, especially 
those v/ho have not been able to make it in our society. 

(2) People are hurt or helped in today's world largely by systems in which 
they live, and we must work to change systems which keep them in or shut 
them out. 

(3) In the effort to do social action in the name of Christ in North Caro- 
lina ecumenism can be a tremendous help. The real impact comes through the 
combined efforts of like committees of each church judicatory.

REPORT OF FLOOR COMMITTEE NO. 4 

Reports reviewed by this committee were Social Ministry, North Carolina 
Lutheran Hemes, Lutheran Children's Home of the South, American Missions, 
World Missions, and Lutheran World Relief. 

The committee was chaired by Pastor Ross Ritchie, Jr., who called on Mrs. 
Ernest Ridenhour, chairman of the Social Ministry Committee, to make general 

presentations. 

Dr. White Iddings highlighted the institutional chaplaincy service in the 
Duham area, laying special stress on contacts with more than 1,200 people in 
the past year, and on the three-day in-service training for pastors afforded at 
Duke Medical Center. 

North Carolina Lutheran Homes (p. 173). Executive Director John Pless 
gave information, introducing the new director of the Albemarle unit, Mr. Job 
Kistler and Mrs. Kistler; Isaac Kuhn of the Hickory Unit; and Mrs. Evelyn 
Ridenhour, Social Worker for the Homes. The latest report on CONCERN appeal 
ingathering is $772,630.29. Thus the base proposals have been met. The 
Challenge Goal is still to be met. Of this goal, $250,000 is in hand. 

A 1 1 0-bed unit planned for Salisbury, with 60 infimrary beds and room 
for 50 ambulatory guests, is projected. Financing would involve gathering re- 
mainder of CONCERN money, gifts, bequests, and other means. Application 
has been made to the Medical Care Commission for a grant, with the hope 
that $400,000 might be provided. Borrowing of funds over and above gifts 
and grants could run to $800,000 or $900,000. 

The recommendation first proposed in the Homes report (p. 178) was 
revised as follows: 

The Board of Trustees of North Carolina Lutheran Homes, entrusted with 
the stewardship of the synod's ministry to the aged, recognizing the great need 
for more nursing beds in its' institutional ministry to the aged; and the need 
for a complete nursing facility offering both ambulatory and infirmary care 
at Salisbury; and also recognizing the practical desirability to do the complete 
unit instead of planning a more costly "piece-meal" construction program — 
recommends that upon further financial developments, the synod's approval be 
left to the decision of the Executive Board of Synod for the Board of Trustees 
to borrow the necessary funds for the completion of the Salisbury 1 1 0-bed unit. 

Paster Karl Dunn offered a substitute motion which reads: 

That the Lutheran Home Board complete all plans, that they raise all 
money possible, and thct they come to the 1973 N. C. Convention with bids 
on the Salisbury unit for approval by the said synod. NOT APPROVED. 

The revised recommendation above was put to a vote. ADOPTED. 

Lutheran Children's Home (p. 186). Mrs. Ridenhour recognized the pres- 
ence of Executive Director Roy Henrickson of the Home. 

Because of press of time, the remainder of the report of Floor Committee 
#4 was moved to Unfinished Business, (see p. 197) 



Social Ministry 



The committee has held four meetings since the last convention of synod. 
Meetings were held at the Church House, Salisbury, August 6-7, 1971; Novem- 
ber 4, 1971; January 6, 1972; and April 6, 1972. in addition, sub-committee 
meetings have been held to make studies end to project plans. 

The committee reports the following activities during the past year: 

1. The committee has studied various social issues including Domestic 
Hunger, Juvenile Corrections System, Crises in Family Life, and Welfare Reform 



174 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

2. The committee continues to be responsible for the N. C. residents at 
Lowmon Home. They are now being served by the Social Worker of the North 
Carolina Lutheran Homes. 

3. In cooperation with other committees and auxiliaries, the committee 
participated in the workshop for new pastors and their wives, February 1-2, 1972. 

4. The Rev. Rufus Cuthbertson, staff member of the Board of Social Min- 
istry, LCA led the committee in a goal-setting process for the beginning of 
action by the committee in late 197 1 end continuing through 1972. To carry 
this out, the members of the committee are endeavoring to meet with each 
congregational Social Ministry Committee or in a small cluster of committees 
to assist ihem in setting goals for their individual committee and congregation. 

The Rev. Cuthbertson has attended the meetings of the committee and kept 
us informed of social ministry concerns and actions in the LCA and its synods. 

5. The committee continues to be responsible for the Lutheran Institutional 
Chaplaincy program, Durham Area. Regular reports are received from Chcpiain 
J. White Iddings indicating that a valuable service is being rendered to many 
persons in crises situations. During 1971 Chaplain Iddings ministered to 1,155 
patients in the various hospitals and institutions in the Durham Area. He reports 
a total of 2,616 visits with patients, 213 conferences with staff, doctors, and 
nurses, 291 counseling sessions for patients and family. Dr. Iddings holds the 
positions of a full staff member in all the hospitals being served and is provided 
office space at the three hospitals, Duke, V.A. and N. C. Memorial at no cost 
to the church. The N. C. Synod has had the full support of this ministry since 
1970 through its budget item under "Special Ministries". 

A three-day hospital "in-training" program for pastors of our synod was 
approved by the ccmmitlee to begin in 1972. This will be one session per 
month under Chaplain Iddings with pastors making application to participate 
in this. Pastors will be helped to develop some insight and basic skills and 
techniques used in successfully ministering to hospital patients and their fam- 
ilies under critical and terminal conditions. 

PLANS FOR 1972-1973 

Looking to 1 972-73, the committee hopes to continue its study of current 
social issues and to offer assistance to congregational committees through pro- 
grams mentioned previously. We also plan to: 

1. Participate in the Evangelism-Stewardship-Social Ministry School at 
Lenoir Rhyne College during the summer of 1972 using the theme "Crises in 
Family Life". 

2. Carry cut the congregotional visitation program mentioned above with 
the goal of reaching every congregation's Social Ministry Committee. 

3. Continue the emphasis on Justice and Social Change, encouraging 
members of the congregation to take part in a retreat experience. 

4. Form tosk groups concerned with social issues and problems with studies 
being made followed by recommendations on needed action by the committee, 
congregation or other concerned groups. 

SOCIAL MINISTRY INSTITUTIONS 

The Social Ministry Committee serves as the liaison between the synod and 
the social ministry institutions and is the channel through which reports of such 
instituitons are brought to the synod. Attached are the following reports: 

(1) N. C. Luthercn Homes, Inc. 

(2) The Lutheran Children's Home of the South.

North Carolina Lutheran Homes 

The Board of Trustees of North Carolina Lutheran Homes respectfully re- 
ports to the North Carolina Synod its activities since the report to the 1971 
convention and submits financial statements for the Board treasurer; the oper- 
ation of the Hickory and Albemarle units and the final construction accounting 
for the Albemarle unit. 

Deep gratitude is hereby expressed to Almighty God for His infinite love, 
mercy and guidance of the synod's ministry to its older people. During the 
past year His witnessing love has been manifested through the care given at 
the Hickory unit, which cares for eighty people; through the opening of the 
Albemarle unit, which cares for fifty people; through the development of plans 
for the Salisbury unit, which will care for 110 people; and through the response 
to CONCERN of more than $280,000. 

CONCERN 

The CONCERN Appeal his met with a good response throughout the synod. 
Most of the congregations accepted goals and have worked to reach or exceed 
those goals. Approximately 25% of the congregations accepted no goals. Most 
of this group have worked on the appeal and have made substantial remittances 
with some congregations having exceeded the suggested goals. Other congre- 
gations have made only a token response and five congregations have remitted 
no money to the appeal. 

The synod is to be commended for the love it has expressed for its older 
people through its response to the CONCERN Appeal, as follows: 
On February 10, 1972, 

congregational remittances on CONCERN were $679,448.51 

Special individual gift receipts were 56,128.00 

Total CONCERN receipts on February 10, 1972 were $735,576.51 

The basic proposals of the CONCERN Appeal have been paid. The pro- 
posals were the promotional cost of the appeal; indebtedness on the Hickory 
unit; building of the Albemarle unit, and the cost of the land for the Salisbury 
unit. We are now in the second part, the Challenge phase, of the CONCERN 
Appeal. The Challenge phase was the ambulatory part of the Salisbury unit. 
The remaining receipts on the CONCERN Appeal will be applied to the Salis- 
bury unit. 

SALISBURY UNIT 

On December 13, 1971, the Board of Trustees adopted the motion "that 
the Executive Director instruct the architect to proceed with the next stage of 
planning for drawing of a total 1 1 0-bed unit to be constructed at the Salisbury 
site." This action of the Board is being carried out by the architectural firm 
Winecoff-Tooly, Inc. of Charlotte, N. C. 

This action of the Board would include the infirmary wings in the con- 
struction of the Salisbury unit. The Board took this action because of the great 
need at Salisbury for the total facility. The total unit is needed now to meet 
the pressing and growing needs of our older people. 

The erection of the 1 1 0-bed unit presents a financial challenge. It is esti- 
mated thct the total 1 1 0-bed unit will cost approximately $1,500,000. If the 
present pattern of giving continues to the end of the CONCERN Appeal, there 
will be approximately $500,000 on hand for this project. There is a possibility, 
but no promise, of receiving a $300,000 to $350,000 grant through the North 
Carolina Medical Care Commission on the infirmary wings and their pro rata 
supporting services; administrative, dietary, mechanical, etc. These resources 
will still leave the project $650,000 to $700,000 short of the estimated cost. 
This gap between available money for the project and the total amount needed 
may be resolved by a lower bid on the project than has been estimated; by 
some congregations going a second mile in generous giving and in special desig- 
nated gifts; by individual special designated gifts; by formation of a Develop- 



176 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

ment Committee to seek special gifts and to assist in financial planning for 
the Salisbury unit; by the help of a Foundation which has expressed an interest 
in this project; by bequests from estates, and by a feasible loan, or possibly 
by a bond financed program. 

After the erection of the main care unit at Salisbury, there is planned a 
retirement community with apartments and cottages on the property. This de- 
velopment will meet the total retirement needs from protective domicile care 
in apartments and cottages; to assistance in meeting the minimum physical 
needs in the ambulatory wing, to full nursing care in the infirmary wings. 
This will be a full Lutheran Retirement and Nursing Care Center. 

ALBEMARLE UNIT 

On February 1, 1972, the Albemarle unit completed one year of operation. 
The first residents did not arrive until February 5, 1971. It has been an excit- 
ing year involving staffing and filling the home with patients. During the first 
year of operation, 87 residents were cared for in the Home. Twenty-two of 
the 87 residents died and 14 improved physically and were able to return 
home. There were a total of 11,798 patient care days rendered at the Albe- 
marle unit during the first year. A word of praise is in order for the highly 
efficient and competent staffs at the Albemarle and Hickory units. 

On December 13, 1971, the Board of Trustees of N. C. Lutheran Homes 
selected Mr. A. Job Kistler to become the administrator of the Albemarle unit 
upon completing a year of intern and meeting the requirements for a North 
Carolina Nursing Home Administrator's License. He began his work at Albe- 
marle on January 15, 1972. 

Mr. Kistler is the son of the late Reverend Henry A. Kistler who served 
Lutheran parishes in North and South Carolina. His mother, Mrs. Myrtle C. 
Kistler, served for nine years as house mother at Lenoir Rhyne College. Mr. 
Kistler is a graduate of Lenoir Rhyne College and a veteran of World War II. 
He lived in Charlotte and was a member of St. Mark's Lutheran Church. 

The Board of Trustees has approved the installation of an air conditioning 
unit in the Albemarle Home. This unit will cost approximately $17,000. The 
room units with individual room controls are a part of the hot water heating 
system. A 50-ton outside chiller with controls will be connected with the hot 
water heating system. Contributions for the air conditioning unit at Albemarle 
are being received. 

A group of laymen from Albemarle have expressed an interest in adding 
ar\ ambulatory wing to the Albemarle unit. The Board received with interest 
this information. They expressed their interest on December 11, 1970 with the 
following motion, "The Board of Trustees looks enthusiastically upon the sug- 
gestion and interest of the people of Albemarle in supplying funds toward the 
completion of the ambulatory wing with facilities and furnishings. It is under- 
stood that this will be with new pledges and new funds not to conflict with 
the commitments made in the CONCERN Appeal. We, therefore, move that the 
Albemarle people be challenged to provide an estimated $200,000, or the 
necessary amount, including arcihtectural fees, etc., to provide the addition 
desired under the direction of N. C. Lutheran Homes." 

The Lutheran Church Women of the N. C. Synod are hereby commended 
and thanked for their Green Stamp drive conducted to purchase a station wagon 
for the Albemarle unit. This drive is now being completed and receipt of the 
station wagon is anticipated soon. Sincere appreciation is hereby expressed to 
the L.C.W. leadership and groups for their initiative and hard work in success- 
fully putting on this drive. 

HICKORY UNIT 

The year of 1971 was a progressive year for the Hickory unit. It rendered 
a high quality of care to its eighty residents. During the year, 116 people 
were cared for in the Hickory unit. There were 17 deaths. A total of 28,894 
patient care days were rendered; with 17,560 in the infirmary and 11,334 
in the ambulatory section. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 177 

Physical improvements were made to the Hickory unit. The Home was re- 
lieved of an ever-recurring problem when it was connected to the City of 
Hickory sewage system. The hook-up with the city system was possible after 
the Home installed a pump lift system and constructed approximately 7/8 of 
a mile of sewage line at a cost of approximately $35,000. 

Once the Home was on the city sewage system a food garbage problem 
was solved. A new garbage disposal was installed in the kitchen. 

Since the Hickory unit was completed, twenty-six infirmary beds have been 
added. The doubling of the number of infirmary patients overloaded the drug 
preparation room. This room has been enlarged and equipped with modern 
furnishings. 

A study of the type needed and the cost of an air conditioning unit for 
the Hickory Home is being made, anticipating installation as soon as feasible. 

The next stage in the long-range development of the Hickory unit is the 
erection of a row of efficiency apcrtments at the south end of the building. 
These apartments would be connected by enclosed passage way to the sun 
porch of the ambulatory wing. Beginning this stage of development is now 
possible. About six years ago, N. C. Lutheran Homes purchased the Campball 
property. This property consists of the house and lot adjacent to the south end 
of the Home property and fronting on 21st Street. Mrs. Campball retained a 
lifetime right to the property. She is now a resident of the Hickory unit and 
is willing to release her property right, thus making available the needed space 
for the addition to the Hickory unit. Solution of the sewage problem makes 
this expansion possible. A considerable sum of money has been left to the 
Hickory unit through wills and bequests and would be available for this de- 
velopment. 

Other gifts and bequests are anticipated for capital improvement and de- 
velopment of the Hickory unit. On August 16, 1971, the Board of Trustees 
approved the Home moving into this phase of development. A study is being 
made as to the type of facility and cost. 

This facility would offer a new and needed dimension in the synod's min- 
istry to the aged. It would provide a more private facility, connected with the 
main unit and having emergency contact with the nurse's station, and yet it 
would be a little removed from the institutional setting of the Home. It would 
offer privacy and would help meet the needs of couples and ambulatory older 
people who need protective and some medical care. Many aging widows in 
declining health who have been left alone need this type of care. It would 
help complete the concept of total care offered by the Hickory unit. 

SOCIAL WORKER 

On August 16, 1971, the Board of Trustees approved Mrs. Ernest Ridenhour 
for the position of Social Worker with N. C. Lutheran Homes. She began work 
on September 1, 1971. 

Job analysis of this position is printed in the 1971 Minutes of Synod, page 
174. At present the major thrust of her work is with applicants for the Homes 
and with their families. She helps applicants with placement in the Homes and 
in availing themselves of any assistance they may be entitled to under federal, 
state, and local health programs. 

Mrs. Ridenhour is available to assist pastors and Social Ministry committees 
in setting up and operating a Home Care Plan in the local congregation. This 
plan is to offer assistance to older people in their homes so they may be able 
to live in their homes for a longer period of time before needing institutional 
care. This program involves adequate diets and assistance in helping older 
people meet their physical, medical, and health needs at home. 

FINANCIAL REPORT 

Accurate financial reports are submitted through the auditor's report. 

A total of $17,067.69 was received through the Executive Director's office 
and disbursed by the Board treasurer in 1971. The Board is most appreciative 
of the memorials and gifts which are received through the Executive Director's 



178 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

office. The memorials are expressions of love and appreciation for departed 
ones. They express a loving concern for the aged and infirm and are a great 
help in the synod's ministry to its older people. 

The Board expresses its deep appreciation for the good support which the 
synod has given through the CONCERN Appeal; and for the prayers and gifts 
of time, talent and resources in meeting the needs of its older people. 

ESTATES 

The following estates have left bequests to North Carolina Lutheran Homes: 

Mrs. Minnie R. Dietz 
Mrs. Carrie Petrea 
Sara Ellen Graves 
Mrs. Floy Hartsoe Self 
Mr. W. K. Mauney 

Recommendation 

The Board of Trustees of North Carolina Lutheran Homes, entrusted with 
the stewardship of the synod's ministry to the aged, recognizing the great need 
for more nursing beds in it's institutional ministry to the aged; and the need 
for a complete nursing facility offering both ambulatory and infirmary care at 
Salisbury; and also recognizing the practical desirability to do the complete unit 
instead of planning a more costly "piece-meal" construction program — recom- 
mends that upon further financial developments, the synod's approval ba left 
to the decision of the Executive Beard of synod for the Board of Trustees to 
borrow the necessary funds for the completion of the Salisbury 110-bed unit.

Hickory, North Carolina 

REPORT ON EXAMINATION 
Year Ended December 31, 1971 

To the Board of Trustees of 

North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the statement of financial position of the Treasurer's 
Fund of the North Carolina Luthercn Homes, Inc. as of December 31, 1971 
and the related statements of revenues and expenditures and fund equity for 
the year then ended. Our examination was made in accordance with gsn3rally 
cccepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the account- 
ing records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in 
the circumstances. The examination of receipts and donations, which because 
of their nature are not susceptible to complete check, was confined principally 
to tests of the deposits of recorded receipts in the authorized depositories. 

In our opinion, except as noted above, the accompanying statements present 
fairly the financial position of the Treasurer's Fund of the North Carolina Luth- 
eran Hemes, Inc. at December 31, 1971 and the results of its operations for 
the year then ended in conformity with procedures generally followed by sim- 
ilar organizations applied on a consistent basis.

REPORT ON EXAMINATION 
Year Ended December 31, 1971 

To the Board of Trustees of 

North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the statement of financial position of the Hickory Unit 
of the North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. as of December 31, 1971 and the 
related statements of revenues and expenditures and fund equity for the year 
then ended. Our excminction was made in accordance with generally accepted 
auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the accounting re- 
cords and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the 
circumstances. The examination of receipts and donations, which because of 
their nature are not susceptible to complete check, was confined principally to 
tests of the deposits of recorded receipts in the authorized depositories. 

In our opinion, except as noted above, the accompanying statements present 
fairly the financial position of the Hickory Unit of the North Carolina Lutheran 
Homes, Inc. at December 31, 1971 and the results of its operations for the 
year then ended, in conformity with procedures generally followed by similar 
organizations applied on a consistent basis.

The Lutheran Children's Home of the South 

SALEM, VIRGINIA 
Fiscal Year January 1, 1971 -December 31, 1971 

This is the 84th annual report of The Lutheran Children's Home in its 
service to children, and covers the year ending December 31, 1971. It will sum- 
marize five areas of our work. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH iN AMERICA 187 



1. Services to Children and Families 

2. Some Highlights 

3. Trends 

4. Finances 

5. Alternate Relationship to Withdrawing Synods 

1. SERVICES TO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES: 

A. 67 children given care during the year 

B. 75 children given some form of assistance, but not admitted 

C. 50 children in residence December 31 

D. 18 children admitted during the year 

E. 17 children discharged during the year 

F. 89 admission inquiries handled by the social work office during the year 

G. 4 children on Mother's Aid Plan. Terminated December 1, 1971 

H. 3 children in foster home care and supervised by our social work staff 

1. 4 students in schools of higher learning: 

1 at University of South Carolina, Columbia, S. C. 

1 at Roanoke College, Salem, Va. 

1 at Miami Dade Junior College, Miami, Florida 

1 at Art Institute, Fort Lcuderdale, Florida 

$6,644 was given in aid to the above students from our Scholarship Fund. 

2. HIGHLIGHTS: 

A. The Heme was highly commended for its outstanding work with children 
by a Citizen Committee appointed to make a study of 16 youth agencies of 
the Roanoke Valley. This study was made under the direction of the Roanoke 
Valley Council of Community Services. Their report said, "At best institutional 
care can never quite substitute for what a child would receive in a normal home 
with loving parents. The Lutheran Children's Home has come a long way in 
bridging this gap in recent years . . . The staff has put real heart into the 
Home. Without this, the Home with all its facilities might be considered an 
average institution when in fact it is far above average." 

B. The Licensing Supervisor of the Department of Welfare and Institutions 
of the Commonwealth of Virginia writes the following: "The quality of care 
and service given by The Lutheran Children's Home to the children during the 
time I have been Licensing Supervisor has been most impressive." 

C. A very successful and profitable Child Care Seminar was held at the 
Home with two of the top persons in the field of child care in our Country 
as leaders. 

D. $94,249.16 was received during the year in form of wills and bequests. 

3. TRENDS: 

A. Applications for placement remained steady. 

B. Applications for older and troubled teenagers continue to increase. 

C. More and more referrals are coming from intact families, juvenile and 
family courts, county welfare departments, etc. 

D. We continue to have difficulty in recruiting and holding good child 
care staff. 

4. FINANCES: 

A. Our financial picture continues to improve. You will note by the audi- 
tor's report that we closed the year with a substantial balance in the General 
Fund. This is necessary to meet the financial needs of the Home during the 
"lean" months of July, August and September. 

B. Our Christmas Appeal continues to be that "extra" to meet the total 
financial needs of the Home. 

C. We received several bequests during the year and have placed them 
in the Pooled Endowment Fund where they continue to work for the Home. 

D. You will note that the item of Child Care Fees have increased from 
$8,713 in 1966 to $75,635 in 1971. This represents fees charged to County 
Welfare Departments who place non-Lutheran children in our Home. 



188 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

5. ALTERNATE RELATIONSHIPS TO WITHDRAWING SYNODS: 

Two synods hove token oction to withdraw from the ownership and support 
of the Heme. The Board, recognizing the fine support received over the years; 
not only financial support, but also the fine friendships established with many 
individuals from these two synods and strong loyalties that have developed, 
being concerned that these loyalties not be completely severed, appointed a 
committee to study the relationship and prepare an alternate relationship. The 
committee prepared the following proposal that was adooted by the Board of 
Trustees at its Semi-Annual Meeting held December 1, 1971: 

It is recommended that two types of relationships to the Children's Home 
as described below be established: 

1. Supporting Relationship: These synods would continue, as at present, 
in full participation in the ownership, control, and support of the Home with 
an agreed-upon number of board members and an annual division of budget 
support of the Home as its needs are demonstrated. 

2. Sustaining Relationship: These synods would participate in a more lim- 
ited way in the affairs of the Home in the following manner: 

1. The Home would continue as a recognized institution of the synod 
(owned and supported by the synod) under the limits proposed in this 
sustaining relationship. 

2. A sustaining synod would have a minimum of three members on the 
Board of Trustees: the synod president, one other pastor, and one lay 
person. 

3. Such synods would have the right to place children in the Home as 
openings are available and the placement would meet the child's needs. 

4. The Home would be extended the privilege of normal contacts by a 
synodlcal institution with congregations and their members. 

5. A limited budgetary support by a sustaining synod would be negotiated 
each year taknig into account the financial position of the synod and 
the needs of the Home. 

With regard to both kinds of relationships, the following two items are 
proposed: 

A. The Heme would arrange to provide child care consultation by pro- 
fessional staff on a regular visitation schedule, with such consultation to be 
arrcnged either at each synodical headquarters or at some other location on 
the territory to be mutually determined. 

B. A review should be made of the existing agreements among the synods, 
and of the by-low provisions of the Home, with regard to equity rights in the 
event of the dissolution of the Home, so as to include among other purposes, 
a reflection of an altered synodical relationship in this regard. 

The following benuests have been received during 1971 and placed in our 
Pooled Endowment Fund: 

Johanna Sheetz, Edinburg, Va $ 115.00 

F. Lee Emswiller, Edinburg, Va 78,482.70 

Peter G. Shafer Trust, Savannah, Ga 3,151.46 

Charlotte Gale Hunter, Roanoke, Va 10,000.00 

F. B. Bultman, Florence, S. C 2,500.00 

We ore most grateful for the interest and support, and pray this interest 
will continue! 

• The following finencial statement for the year ending December 31, 1971 
is condensed from the audit of Anderson & Reed, C.P.A., Roanoke, Virginia, 
end presents foiriy the finencial position of the various funds and their operation.

REPORT ON EXAMINATION OF ACCOUNTS AND RECORDS 
December 31, 1971 

January 31, 1972 
Executive Committee 

The Lutheran Children's Home of the South 
Salem, Virginia 

We have examined the accounts and records of the Lutheran Children's 
Home of the South and prepared the statement of financial condition at De- 
cember 31, 1971 and a condensed statement of income and expenses of the 
General Fund only for the year then ended. Our examination was made in 
accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and included such tests 
and other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances, 
except that outside confirmations of contributions and board of children were 
not attempted. 

In our opinion, subject to the above exception regarding contributions and 
board of children, the accompanying statement of financial condition at De- 
cember 31, 1971 and the condensed statement of income and expenses of the 
General Fund only, present fairly the financial position of the various funds at 
December 31, 1971 and the operation of the General Fund for the year then 
ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on 
a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. Exhibit B does not include 
the operations of any of the various funds other than the General Fund.

spective distritcs. 

Pastors' Salaries — The Committee receives recommendations for subsidies

izes the payment of this subsidy in monthly installments to the congregations 
that have been approved.

ministry are developed. 

IV. APPALACHIAN COUNSELLOR 

Through the use of ACT Funds, Pastor Carroll Wessinger has been serving 
as Appalachian Counsellor in the N. C. and Virginia Synods, it has been hoped 
that the Love Compels Action Program would have continued the financing of 
this valuable service. Funds have not been forthcoming in sufficient amount to 
underwrite the program, so BAM has committed itself to support this program 
through December 31, 1972.

Andrew, Mount Airy; Redeemer, Gastonia; and Our Saviour, Welcome, each 
received $250. 

VII. SUSTENTATION PROGRAM 

This program which has been carried on for a number of years to help 
support the Ministry in certain congregations that are not listed as Mission 
Congregations under the terms of the Board, has been modified by the action 
of the synod in seeking to provide funds to bring pastors' salaries up to a 
certain minimal level of support in all congregations. Congregations not able to 
provide their pastors with this minimal annual salary (set by action of synod), 
plus free parsonage with utilities paid, as well as an adequate allowance for 
automobile costs, were to apply to the President for supplemental grants. A 
special committee examines the Committee on American Missions that such 



192 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

supplements be authorized for payment through the sustentation program. Grants 
in amount of $18,550 were given in 1971. Grants in amount of $28,413.34 
have been approved for 1972.

C. MILLER SIGMON, Chairman 
CLAUDE V. DEAL, Secretary 

World Missions 

The function of this committee is to keep before congregations and indi- 
viduals the challenge of the gospel witness throughout the world. 

The committee held three meetings on November 8, 1971, February 14, 
1972, and April 5, 1972, at the Church House in Salisbury. The April meeting 
was attended by Pastor Arthur O. K. Bauer, Secretary for Interpretation of the 
Board of World Missions, New York. 

An opportunity was presented to us to participate in a pilot project Mission 
Interpretor Program. Participation in this program gave a North Carolina lay- 
man exposure and experience overseas to equip him for deputation interpre- 
tation work in the synod. Funding of this program was a co-operative venture 
by the Board of World Missions, North Carolina Synod, and the individual 
making the trip. Mr. Vincent Vierling of Winston-Salem was our participant in 
the January 21 -February 28, 1972 World Mission Seminar to India. He is now 
available to congregations for a period of one year to make a presentation on 
his trip. You are urged to use Mr. Vierling and his program in any way that 
your local congregation deems best. 

Because of this unusual opportunity to have part in the Mission Interpretor 
experiment our committee decided not to request the traditional missionary 
itineraries during Epiphany of this year. 

We recognize the contribution of The Rev. John L. Yost, Jr., D.D. of Hickory 
who serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of World Missions of the Lutheran 
Church in America. Also, Mrs. Ray Fisher of Winston-Salem who is an official 
liaison representative of Lutheran Church Women to the BWM. 

Congregations and individuals are encouraged to participate in the Mis- 
sionary Support and Co-Partner Plans of BWM which is now a part of Designated 
Advance Gifts. The Lutheran Church in America sends pastors, teachers, doctors, 
nurses, social workers, and technicians to twenty foreign countries, where they 
assist in ministering to the needs of people through congregations, schools, 
hospitals, and community improvement projects. Through the Missionary Support 
Program gifts in units of $600 (or $300 for a half unit) can be designated to 
the support of a particular missionary. 

The following congregations and individuals gave financial support during 
1971:

Lutheran World Relief 



A single meeting of the Committee on Lutheran World Relief was held at 
the Church House on September 10, 1971. Being aware of increased demands 
upon Lutheran World Relief during the year, the committee discussed ways to 
achieve a better response from the congregations of our synod. 

The following suggestions were passed along to the pastors of congregations: 
(1) ask a woman to head up L.W.R. in your congregation; (2) ask people to 
doncte blankets and children's clothing; (3) have designated collecting areas 
in your church plant; (4) ask groups to make blankets or quilts; (5) suggest 
that mill remnants, from which blankets can be made, may be obtained at 
little cost; (6) encourage children in Sunday Church School to bring items of 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 195 

clothing for children in need; and (7) encourage some group to announce and 
make a pick-up of the needed items from the homes of the congregation and/or 
the community. 

Descriptive folders of all the congregational projects suggested by L.W.R. 
were sent to each pastor. Along with these was sent the announcement that 
monetary gifts of $100 or more may be made to L.W.R. through the Designated 
Advance Gifts program of the church. 

An appeal emphasizing the special need for blankets and children's clothing 
was promoted in the synod during the month of October. Eight collecting centers 
were provided by churches and businessmen. Free transportation from these 
centers to the New Windsor, Maryland, warehouse was provided by the Caro- 
lina Freight Carriers Corporation of Cherryville, N. C. Congregations of the ALC 
and LC-MS were invited to share in these arrangements. The total weight of 
N. C. contributions was 10,406 pounds. This is more than double the amount 
reported from the 1970 appeal. 

Blankets and children's clothing continue to be the greatest needs of Luth- 
eran World Relief. Your committee appreciates the response you have given 
and calls upon you to continue this good work.

The Rev. Carl Thomas was recognized for the second presentation of his

whole of the church, but that the church is not whole without social ministry. 

He said that the community of tomorrow depends upon the issues of today. 
By means of a striking parable, showing both psychosis and sanity, he dis- 
cussed three areas of crisis, namely, the crisis of events, the crisis of structures, 
and the crisis of value systems.

for his services as chairman of the local entertainment committee.

istries. Pastors Walter Yount and L. E. Cumbee spoke in favor of the recom-

that it had its limitations for income purposes.

mission congregations, Gnd the growing edges of the Southeast where mission 
opportunities continue to challenge the whole church. 

Statistically, he pointed to the growth of the mission churches in the synod

The following resolution offered by Pastor K. Y. Huddle at the 1971 con- 
vention was considered at this time: 

WHEREAS, there is wisdom in the synod being able to abolish any office 
it creates; and 

WHEREAS, the welfare of the synod and its congregations are of foremost 
concern; and 

WHEREAS, it is wise to make provision to best fit the needs of congre- 
gations and individuals; and 

WHEREAS, there may be necessity of changing the offices or the talents 
of the office of the Administrative assistant to the president; and 

WHEREAS, there is no provision for the termination of the office of Admin- 
istrative Assistant to the president without possible embarrassment to the pres- 
ident or the executive board; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: — 

1. That the synod shall retain control of the office of Administrative 
Assistant to the President which it has created and to this intent may recall 
any Administrative Assistant at any convention by a two-thirds ( 2 /z) vote of 
the delegates present and voting; 

2. That the contact with the local congregation and its members may 
always be current, the term of office of any Administrative Assistant shall not 
exceed seven (7) years in total; provided further that should such Administ- 
rative Assistant be necessary or required for the welfare of the synod or of its 
special program; the synod may extend the term of service up to an additional 
four (4) years; 

3. That the office of president of synod may remain open and uninflu- 
enced in its selection, no Administrative Assistant actively serving in such office 
or under appointment as acting president by appointment of the Executive 
Board shall be eligible to election to the office of president of synod. 

4. That these powers may not be delegated. 

President Whittecar ruled on the resolution in view of the constitutional 
amendments adopted at this meeting and at a previous meeting of this con- 
vention. 

Section 1 was ruled out of order as being in conflict with the provision for 
recall or dismissal by the Executive Board. 

Section 2 was ruled out of order as being in conflict with a provision pro- 
viding for terms of administrative assistants running concurrent with that of 
the president of synod. 

Section 3 was ruled out of order as being in conflict with the constitution 
which has no limitation of eligibility for office of president. 
The ruling of the chair was sustained by the convention.

at the first meeting following the 1971 convention, June 10, 1971, and funct- 
ioned effectively through the interim. Members of the Executive Board were 
assigned to at least one sub-committee. H. E. Isenhour, LL.D., and Harry E. 
Faggart, Jr., J.D., non-members of the Executive Board, were continued on the 
Church House and Legal committees respectively. 

The duties of the sub-committee are listed in the 1964 Report of the Exec-

reports and recommendations to the Executive Board. Sub-committees on Budget 
and Finance, and Conventions held special meetings in preparation for the 
synod convention. The sub-committee structure has been found to be a most

CATALOGUE OF ACTIVITIES 

The Board submits a summary of its activities and actions since the last 
convention for review and action by the synod, and in so doing, gives an ac- 
counting of its stewardship in all facets of its ministry entrusted to it by the 
synod in convention, boards and committees of the synod, and the constitution 
itself. It acts for the synod ad interim within the bounds of the constitution. 
Its actions penetrate the life of the synod and church at so many strategic 
places. The report shows the wide areas of responsibility and concern, the 
spheres of activity and the scope of its ministry. The report includes starred 
items, that require convention action and items reported for information only. 

A. OFFICERS AND STAFF 

The officers and staff submitted quarterly reports of official acts and activ- 
ities of their respective offices. The reports of the president and assistant to 
the president included listings of resignations of pastors, acceptance of calls, 
vacancies and appointments of vice pastors, and other matters of information 
and interest pertaining to the life of the church. A monthly breakdown of re- 
ceipts and disbursements was included in the treasurer's reports. Reports of 
officers and staff were mailed out prior to board meetings, and were received 
as information, except items requiring board action. Full reports are appended 
to the minutes of board meetings. 

Of special significance, President Whittecar reported the following matters: 

1. Blanket Fidelifv Bond, status of 
(EBM, Sept. 1971, Exhibit A) 

President Whittecar reported that according to the report of the LCA 
Finance and Budget Committee to the Executive Council of the Church, losses 
under the LCA's blanket fidelity bond which covers our congregations continue 
to be high to the extent that the Federal Insurance Company with which the 
bond is carried hos increased its premium from $27,000 to $32,000, and sub- 
mitted the committee's recommendation as information: 

(1) That the treasurer of the church be authorized to continue the blanket 
fidelity bond with the present carrier, Federal Insurance Company, for 
another year, and 

(2) That effective October 1, 1971, a responsibility for the $500 deductible 
per claim be transferred to the congregation. In light of this action the 
committee asked that synod notify its congregations of the fact that the 
$500 deductible on a fidelity claim will, beginning October 1, be the 
responsibility of the congregation. Other than this, coverage remains the 
some. 

2. Congregational Consultations, initiation of 
(EBM, Dec. 1971, Exhibit A) 

At the December meeting, President Whittecar reported the inauguration of 
a program for visitation with pastors and church councils, and outlined a plan 
of procedure for the perish consultations. He said that he would be assisted in 
this program by Dr. Misenheimer, assistant to the president. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 205 

3. Nazareth, Rural Hall, pastoral relationships with, investigation of 

(EBM, Dec. 1971, Exhibit A) 

President Whittecar reported that the church council of Nazareth Church, 
Rural Hali, asked for an investigation of the relationship between that congre- 
gation and its pastor, the Rev. Thomas Renninger. A committee was appointed 
consisting of Pastor Carl Ritchie, Pastor Herman Fisher, and Mr. Wilbur M. 
Lockrow of Winston-Salem, along with the President of Synod. The committee 
made the proper investigation with the approval of the pastor, and made 
recommendations that the pastor be continued, that the pastor be diligent in 
the performance of all duties, and that the congregation accept the ministry 
of the pastor and give him their support. 

B. ELECTIONS 

In accordance with Article Five, Section II, item 3m of the synodical con- 
stitution, the Board held elections to fill the following vacancies: 

Home Mission Foundation, Directors — Mr. Joe C. Ridenhour of Kannapolis, 
having been nominated by the Home Mission Foundation, and re-eletced by the 
LM Executive Committee, for a term of 12 years, was ratified by the Executive 
Board, term expiring in 1983. 

Mr. Paul Shue of Landis was ratified by the Board to fill the unexpired term 
of Mr. Phillip Lipe, term expiring in 1972. 

Michael Peeler Trust Fund, Trustee — Dr. John L. Yost, Jr. was re-elected 
for a term of three years, term expiring in 1975. 

Southern Seminary — Samuel Behrends, Jr. of Raleigh, was elected to fill 
the unexpired term of Dr. R. Brown McAllister, term expiring in 1972. 

Lenoir Rhyne College — Thomas Borland of Salisbury was elected to fill 
the unexpired term of Dr. Glenn E. Ketner, term expiring in 1974. 

N. C. Lutheran Homes — Gregory Peeler of Salisbury was elected to fill the 
unexpired term of Mrs. Ernest W. Ridenhour, term expiring in 1972. 

■ — Rev. John Sigmon of Morganton was elected to fill the unexpired term 
of John K. Lasley, term expiring in 1972. 

C. CALLS TO 5PEC5AL SERVSGE 

Calls to Special Service were issued to: 

The Rev. Michael C. D. McDoniel, with assignment to the faculty of Lenoir 
Rhyne College, called extended June 10, 1971; 

The Rev. Daniel J. Simundson, with assignment to the faculty of Appalachian 
State University as assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy and 
Religion, primarily in the Old Testament, call extended September 9, 1971; 

The Rev. David L. Martin, as a graduate student, call extended Dec. 9, 1971; 

The Rev. Roy L. Trexler, with assignment to the pastoral ministry at Cold 
Water Lutheran Church, Concord, for a period of two years, call extended March 
9, 1972. 

The application of Dr. Lester H. Keasey for a Call to special service was 
thoroughly reviewed by the sub-committee on Ministers in light of the LCA 
revised edition of the Standards for Acceptance into and Continuance in the 
Ministry. 

Dr. Keasey was continued on the roll of ministers by action of the synod to 
the limit of three years under the category of "awaiting call". 

It was the committee's judgment that Dr. Keasey does not qualify for a 
call under paragraphs "j", "k", "I", or "m" of the Standards. Dr. Keasey is 
on the faculty of Appalachian State University, Boone, in the Department of 
Sociology. The difference between him and Professor Daniel J. Simundson also 
on the faculty of the same university is that Dr. Simundson is in the Department 
of Bible, which according to the Standards qualifies him for a call. 

The Board concurred with the committee that a strict adherence to the 
Standards disqualified Dr. Keasey, and approved with regret that the application 
of Dr. Keasey be denied. (EBM, June 1971, pp. 7-9) 



206 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

It was pointed out that the door is left open for Dr. Keasey to return to 
the ministerial roll should he at some later time receive and accept a call to 
service that fits the concept of the ordained ministry. 

The application of Frederick M. Hintze for a call to special service with 
assignment to the Onslow County Mental Health Clinic as Alcoholic Counselor 
and coordinator was referred to the committee on Social Ministry. A special sub- 
committee reviewed the application, and it was the opinion of the committee that 
since this type of ministry could not qualify as on extension of the church's 
ministry according to the Standards referred to above, that the application be 
denied. 

The Board's sub-committee on Ministers concurred with the conclusions. The 
Board also concurred.

F. REFERRALS 

1. Pacific Southwest Synod., communication from 

(EBM, June 1971, p. 22; 1971 Pro., p. 217) 

The communication called attention to the moral degradation and physical 
devastation due to a generation of violence in Indo-China, and called on the 
Lutheran Church in America to take immediate steps to organize and forthwith 
implement, either directly or through the Lutheran World Federation, a program 
of aid and services to persons, refugees, and communities who have suffered 
from the war in Indo-China and that synods take similar action. 

The communication was considered in light of a letter from LCA President 
Robert J. Marshall relative to the above communication in which Dr. Marshall 
submitted information about the work of Lutheran World Relief in Vietnam and 
other agencies ct work there which bear upon the area of concern as expressed 
by the resolution of the Pacific Southwest Synod.

parts relating to congregationcl action be referred to the synod's committee on 
Lutheran World Relief and/or the committee on Social Ministry.

ately to provide this needed care within the flexibility now provided for the 
operation of the synod staff. 

At the September meeting, President Whittecar reported that he was search- 
ing for a man, preferably a Icyman, which would be the first step toward im- 
plementation, and solicited nominations from board members. 

3. LCA Delegates, election of 

(EBM, June 1971, p. 24; 1971 Pro., p. 240) 

Since the fifth ballot at the synod convention for two LCA delegates (Clergy, 
Section) tailed to elect, the convention voted that this election be taken to the 
Executive Board. 

The following motion prevailed before the results of the fifth ballot were 
revealed: 

That the Executive Board cast its ballot for the two receiving the highest 
number of votes on the fifth and final ballot by the convention for the two 
remaining clerical delegates to the LCA Convention, Section II. 

Pastors K. Y. Huddle and John H. Sigmon, Jr., were declared elected. This 
completed the election of LCA delegates. 

4. Professional Resources, study of 

(EBM, September 1971, p. 18; 1971 Pro., p. 217) 
The following resolution was referred to the Executive Board: 
WHEREAS, there are needs for professional services in specialized training 

areas that cannot always be met by the synodical staff; and 

WHEREAS, pastors need the opportunity of Professional Referral Services; nad 
WHEREAS, pastors often need pastoral counseling from Trained Professional 

Counselors; and 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 209 



WHEREAS, pastors also need the opportunity and resources for continued 
Training in Pastoral Care and Counseling; 

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Executive Board of the N. C. Synod complete and 
implement their study of the availability of professional services within existing 
institutions and from trained counselors within the territory of the synod and 
that these services be arranged for congregational and pastoral care and training. 

The resolution was clarified as to its intent and purpose. It was designed to 
provide professional counseling to pastors in need of help, and the synod's buying 
time for professional counseling. 

The following persons were named to give this matter some thought and 
study: synod staff, Joe Bookout, Marion Starr, Bachman Brown, Douglas Fritz, 
and John Yost, Jr. 

A report of the committee was presented at the May 7, 1972 board meet- 
ing, but was tabled until the June, 1972 meeting of the Board. 

5. Election Procedures, study of, progress report on 

(EBM, March 1972; 1971 Pro., p. 218) 

The following resolution was adopted at the 1971 convention: 

WHEREAS, we have consumed 7% of the convention's scheduled 17 hours 
of agenda time in making nominations from the floor; and 

WHEREAS, nominations were invalid if not handed in in writing, even though 
acknowledged by the chair; and 

WHEREAS, the democratic process of making nominations from the floor is 
preserved by nominations in writing being handed in during the first hour of 
the convention, collected by the nomination committee staff and then read to 
the convention by the president; and 

WHEREAS, considerable time of the convention could thus be salvaged; and 

WHEREAS, there are other surmountable problems which can be solved; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the President appoint a select committee 
of three lay persons and two pastors to study the convention procedures in 
making nominations from the floor, specifically for the purpose of shortening 
the amount of time consumed. 

The President appointed the following committee: Bachman S. Brown, Jr., 
Harry Faggart, Harry Fesperman, the Rev. Vernon Frick and the Rev. Paul 
Gerschwitz. 

The committee submitted a progress report at the March 9, 1972 board 
meeting. The committee reported that the use of the nomination blank would 
expedite election procedures. Nominations need not be made orally from the 
floor but could be made on nomination blanks, limited to one nomination from 
each delegate for each office to be filled and properly signed. 

The report was received as information.

H. COMMITTEES 

1 . Evangelism, grant-in-aid for 

(EBM, June 1971, p. 3) 

Approved request for grant-in-aid of $500 from the LCA Commission on 
Evangelism to help finance the 1972 edition of the Carolinas' Evangelism Con- 
ference, held at St. Mark, Charlotte, February 7-8, 1972. 

2. Church Vocations, church vocation loons, satisfaction of 
(EBM, Sept. 1971, p. 4) 

Approved that notes held by the Treasurer of Synod against persons for 
beneficiary aid in preparing for the ministry or other church vocations be marked 
"paid in full" by reason of the fact that those persons receiving such aid have 
fulfilled the requirements for loans by serving at least seven years in the min- 
istry of the United Lutheran Church in America or the Lutheran Church in 
America. 

Upon recommendation of the Church Vocations Committee, the Board at its 
March 9, 1972 meeting, granted authority to the committee to use funds from 
the revolving loan fund to supplement loans from budget for loans repayable 
in service as well as in cash. 

3. Parish Education Committee, calendar time, request for 

The communication from the Parish Education Committee reads: 
"Realizing the importance of making proper preparation for introducing new 
curricular materials to the congregations during the coming years and attempt- 
ing to carry on existing programs and initiating new programs of other boards 
and agencies of the church, the Parish Education Committee of the North 
Carolina Synod appeals to the Executive Board to recommend to the LCA 
Executive Council that there be a more unified and co-ordinated approach in 
implementing the various programs of the total church to allow sufficient days 
on the calendar for preparations, so as not to confuse the local congregations 
by various and overlapping programs. 



212 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



"A time spread of emphases, co-operative leadership training plans across 
the various emphases and early knowledge of schedule needs on the local level, 
may help to implement more worthwhile participation in the individual con- 
gregations." 

In light ot these concerns, the Executive Board was asked to consider keep- 
ing the months of May and September as free as possible of synod-wide functions 
for Parish Education use. 

In view of this request, the following motion prevailed: 

That the Executive Board assume responsibility in setting up some priority 
of programming to give guidance to the boards and agencies of the synod and 
that this be communicated to the parish education committee as a response to 
its request. 

4. Parish Education, field consultant in, questions regarding 

(EBM, Jan. 1971, pp. 15-16; EBM, March 1971, p. 10; Sept. 1971, p. 8) 
The Board raised some questions with the Steering Committee regarding the 
services of the consultant in parish education for a cluster of congregations in 
the Northwestern and Southwestern districts such as to how this program is to 
be related to the office of Secretary of Christian Education, and the synodical 
committee on Parish Education, how will the proposed audio-visual and library 
center be related to the synodical film library, and will congregations take on 
this added expense that are not able to pay their apportionments or that require 
synodical assistance in supporting their pastors, and asked for a report of its 
activities. 

5. Parish Education, Cooperative Program in, bylaws of, addition to 

(EBM, Jan. 1971, p. 15; EBM, March 1971, p. 10; EBM, Sept. 1971, p. 8; 

EBM, Dec. 1971, p. 6) 

A report from the Operational Committee of the Cooperative Program in 
Parish Education of which Sister Evelyn Houlroyd serves as field consultant and 
worker was presented at the Board's December meeting. It was reported that 
four churches are supporting the program with the fifth to paticipate beginning 
January 1, 1972. 

This program has been given provisional approval by the Board subject to 
periodic review. 

By-laws were amended as follows: 

That Article VI of the by-laws be amended by adding the words: "and shall 
become effective only upon approval of the Executive Board of the North 
Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America". 

It was understood that in communicating this action either to the com- 
mittee or to the synod that it does not give the impression that this program 
is designed to set a precedent for the synod or that it is a part of the synodical 
program until further evaluated. 

6. Committees priorities, listing of, request for 

Feeling the need for some guidance from committees, boards, and auxiliaries 
as to long range goals, the Board approved a recommendation: 

That committees, boards, and auxiliaries be asked to identify needs, prob- 
lems, and priorities in their areas of concern so that the long range committee 
might develop a sense of direction for the Executive Board. 

7. World Mission Seminar, participation in, request for 

(EBM, Dec. 1971, p. 7) 

Pastor Lester Roof, Jr., chairman of the committee on World Missions, spoke 
on behalf of the World Mission Seminar, a five weeks' study program involving 
key persons to visit mission situations in India, including reflection sessions and 
conversations with church and government leaders, according to an itinerary 
which had been arranged from January 21 to February 28, 1972. 

It was reported that Mr. Vincent J. Vierling of Winston-Salem, a member of 
the committee, had expressed an interest in the program and would be available 
to attend. Upon his return, he would share his experiences and interpret the 
mission program to the congregations of synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 213 

Participation in the program would cost $1,300 shared by the Board of 
World Missions, the synod, and the participant himself. 

Upon recommendation of the committee, the Board voted to participate in 
the program by providing funds for Mr. Vierling to attend in amount of $700 
from the Michael Peeler Income Fund as a one time grant for this program. 

It was noted that this was the same program which the Executive Board had 
approved for President Whittecar in 1970, but that his participation had to be 
cancelled. 

8. Youth Ministry, youth staffer program, continuation of 
(EBM, Dec. 1971, p. 8) 

Pastor Philip Deese, chairman of the Youth Ministry Committee, appeared 
on behalf of the committee in connection with the youth staffer program, and 
reported that the LCA Commission on Youth Ministry had found merit in the 
program and was asking that it be continued for another year. 

Upon recommendation of the synodical committee, the Board approved that 
the youth staffer program be continued for 1972-73, the year involved being 
from July 23, 1972, through July 22, 1973, and approved a budget of $4,356, 
the funds to be drawn from the Michael Peeler Fund. 

9. Lutheran Men's Sunday, designation for, request for 
(EBM, March 1972) 

The Executive Committee of Lutheran Men, at its meeting held January 16, 
1972, took action to petition the Executive Board to designate a Sunday during 
the month of October as "Lutheran Men's Sunday" as an annual affair. The 
idea is that on this Sunday the Lutheran Men would have a specific part, or 
the entire service, in order that the work of the Lutheran Men might be em- 
phasized in each congregation. 

The Board reviewed the request and took the following action: 
In view of the fact that not all congregations have a unit of Lutheran Men, 
and in view of the increasing use of lay participation in the services and funct- 
ions of the church throughout the year, that the Board not place on the 
synodical calendar such a day, but would encourage local congregational units 
to make appropriate emphasis, and to consider this recommended Laymen's 
Sunday as one possibility of calling attention to its work. 

10. Committee on Military Personnel, discontinuation of, request for 
(EBM, March , 1972) 

Upon request of the committee on Military Personnel that the committee 
be concluded and that its service be assumed by another committee, the Board 
approved in principle the request to conclude this committee's work as no longer 
feasible and to assign its duties to the Evangelism committee of the synod, and 
that appropriate bylaw amendments be proposed to implement this recom- 
mendation. 

1 1 . Staff Personnel, request for 
(EBM, March 1972) 

The Board received two requests for fulltime staff persons, one from the 
Camp Committee for an Executive Director of Outdoor Ministries, along with a 
job description of his duties, and the other from the Social Ministry committee 
for an Administrative Assistant or Secretary for Social Ministry to serve in the 
area of social action on the basis of sixteen concerns of the committee. 

The Board received and considered the requests, and referred them to the 
Long Range Planning Committee for further study and report back to the Exec- 
utive Board. 

12. Long Range Planning Committee, report of 
(EBM, March 1972) 

A meeting of the committee was held on March 2, 1972. 

The committee discussed the many programs of the committees of the synod 
and institutions supported by the synod and some lack of coordination with the 
Executive Board in the area of plans, programs, and financial requirements. The 
sub-committee sees the need for long range planning on the part of the com- 
mittees and institutions and better communications with the Executive Board so 
that the Synod Staff and the Executive Board could better set priorities in the 
field of manpower and financial requirements with greater emphasis on certain 



214 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

programs after priorities have been established. Better scheduling of program 
emphasis could be made with the congregations and overlapping or duplication 
of effort could be avoided. 

The committee — 
Recommended: the expansion of this sub-committee into a temporary task force 
to meet and design a plan for long range planning and communication 
with the Executive Board by all committees and institutions; and 
Recommended: that the task force be composed of the following members to 
give proper representation throughout the synod: Pastor John Yost, 
Executive Board; Joe L. Bookout, Executive Board; Pastor Jack Smith, 
District Deans; Pastor Floyd Bost, Synod Committees; Dr. Ernest Mis- 
enheimer, Synod Staff; Mr. Joe Ridenhour, Institutions; Donovan But- 
ler, Member Christ Church, Charlotte with planning experience. 
The recommendations were adopted. 

The requests from the Camp Committee for an Executive Director of Outdoor 
Ministries and from the Social Ministry Committee for an Administrative Assist- 
ant or Secretary for Social Ministry were referred to the Long Range Planning 
Committee for further study. The committee reported its findings on these two 
requests at the May 7, 1972 meeting of the Board. (EBM, May 1972, pp. 7-9) 
1. Outdoor Ministries, Executive Director for 

The committee was supplied with information on the development of the 
camp site at Sanford as follows: 

1. A complete program for the Sanford site development was approved by 
the Executive Board in 1967. 

2. The Synod has budgeted for the Camp Committee - — ■ Long Range 
Planning: 

1968 $10,000.00 

1969 15,000.00 

1970 20,000.00 

1971 20,000.00 

1972 25,000.00 

3. To date 554 V2 acres have been acquired for $92,000 with an average 
cost of $166.00 per acre. 

4. Additional funds for the purchase of property or debt repayment have 
come from the Michael Peeler Fund. 

5. $20,000 is now due the Campus Committee for funds borrowed for land 
acquisitions with the expectation that repayment will be completed in 1972 with 
$10,000 from the Camp Committee-Long Range Program and $10,000 from the 
Michael Peeler Fund. 

6. As of April 24, 1972, the Camp Committee-Long Range Program has 
available resources of $35,294.23, provided the full $25,000.00 is received from 
the 1972 Synod Budget. 

7. Charles Stott has completed his site study and development analysis work 
and a program for minimum improvements for long range development would 
require: 

1972-73 $ 5,000 

1974 20,000 

1975 52,000 

1976 45,000 

1977 23,000 

1978 30,000 

1979 46,000 

1980-1988 300,000 

8. The program is now in a "hold" period until development can be started 
under proper supervision and direction. 

9. The Camp Committee-Long Range Program budget item may increase 
from $25,000 to $35,000 over the next 3-5 years. 

It was reported that the Camp Committee is proposing to employ a Director 
of Outdoor Ministries with the funds to be taken from the budgeted item of 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 215 

$25,000 for 1972 and subsequent years. Without a director, the whole project 
is at a standstill until development can begin under direction. 

In light of the above information and proposals, the Long Range Planning 
Committee submitted the following recommendations: 

1 . That the Camp Committee be authorized to employ a director subject 
to the Camp Committee. 

2. That the salary of the director be paid from the budget item for the 
Camp Committee-Long Range Program. 

3. That the Camp Committee through its director be allowed to solicit 
development funds from individuals and interested congregations of the synod. 

The recommendations were considered seriatim. 

Recommendation 1 — ADOPTED. 

Recommendation 2 — With the amendment that the amount of the salary 
paid be approved by the Executive Board. ADOPTED. 

Recommendation 3 — ADOPTED. 
2. Social Ministry, administrative assistant for 

The Long Range Planning Committee made the following recommendations 
regarding the request of the Social Ministry Committee for a full-time admin- 
istrative assistant: 

1. That one of the administrative assistants not be specifically assigned to 
a full time position working only in the area of Social Ministry if the staff 
structure amendments are approved. 

2. That the Executive Board not propose to the convention the creation of 
a Secretary of Social Ministry with funding for immediate employment. 

Recommendation 1 — ADOPTED. 
Recommendation 2 — ADOPTED. 
The report was amended by adding a third recommendation, as follows: 

3. That the president of synod assign responsibilities for assistance to the 
social ministry committee to one of the administrative assistants. 

The committee gave reasons for its action as follows: 

1. That purpose of the staff structure amendments is to allow flexibility in 
the use of synod staff personnel without specific, detailed assignment to one 
area or cause of the Synod. By specifically designating an administrative assist- 
ant to the specific task of Social Ministry and Social Action, much of the thrust 
of the amendments would be lost and the request of the convention for one 
additional administrative assistant would result in the additional position being 
created for the sole purpose of Social Ministry. 

2. The Sub-Committee questions whether the synod is financially able to 
support a full time position in the area of Social Ministry at this time. The synod 
budget is now only being met to the extent of approximately 80%. A position 
when created must be fully funded and it would appear that if a position was 
now created for Social Ministry, some other program of the Synod must be 
dropped to provide the necessary funds. 

3. The Long Range Planning Sub-Committee has just undertaken a study 
with an expanded committee to seek out the needs of the Synod over a 3-5 year 
period of time with the purpose of reporting to the Executive Board the needs 
of the institutions, boards and committees in the future for planning and priority 
setting by the Board. At this time, we are not able to adequately evaluate this 
request and its long-term implications when compared with other needs and 
programs of the synod. 

The Board voted to transmit its report to the Social Ministry Committee as 
its answer to the request for full-time staff worker. 

*13. Stewardship Committee, resolution from 

(EBM, May 1972, pp. 6-7) 
The Board adopted the following resolution of the Stewardship Committee on 
Project Equality to recommend to the synod: 



216 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

BE IT RESOLVED, that the North Carolina Synod of the LCA authorize its 
Executive Board to provide to each auxiliary, agency, committee or board of the 
synod Project Equality compliance Forms with the request that, in so far as pos- 
sible, they use these forms and engage in business transactions with those bus- 
inesses who are in compliance with the Project Equality guide lines. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, thot this synod recommend that its congrega- 
tions be encouraged to do likewise. 

I. CONVENTIONS 

1. 1971 Weekend Convention, evaluation of 

(EBM, June 1971, p. 10) 

The results of the evaluations of the 1971 weekend convention by con- 
vention delegates on special sheets distributed at the convention for evaluation 
purposes were reported to the boards and congregations of synod as instructed 
by the convention. Out of the 369 evaluation sheets returned, 159 were in favor 
of the weekend convention every year, 42 on alternate years, 43 occasionally, 
and 27 never again. To the question, how did your congregation react to the 
pastor being away on Sunday?, there were 167 positive feelings and 32 negative. 
There were a number of changes suggested which the convention committee took 
under advisement in planning for the 1972 convention. Generally, the reactions 
were very favorable for a weekend convention. 

2. 1972 Convention, time and place of 

(EBM, June 1971, p. 19; EBM, Sept. 1971, p. 11) 

The Conventions Committee held two separate meetings to plan for the 1972 
convention. Upon recommendation of the committee, the Board confirmed plans 
to hold the 1 972 Convention at the Durham Hotel and Convention Center, Dur- 
ham, on May 8-10. 

Upon recommendation of the committee, the agenda appearing in the con- 
vention bulletin was approved. 

Weekend dates were not available. 

3. 1973 Convention, time and place of 

(EBM, Jan. 1971, p. 9; EBM, Dec. 1971, p. 11) 

The Board at its January 1971 meeting approved Lenoir Rhyne College as 
the scene of the 1973 convention. 

The Board also approved a weekend convention at Lenoir Rhyne, to be held

J. LENOIR RHYNE COLLEGE 
*1. College and Synod, proposed covenant between 

(EBM, June 1971, pp. 16-19; EBM, Sept. 1971, p. 7) 

The idea of a covenant between college and synod originated with the 
Board of College Education and Church Vocations in order to strengthen the 
working relationship between college and synod. A special commission of col- 
lege presidents and synodiccl leaders made a study of the relationship between 
college and synod and the need of strengthening that relationship. Therefore, 
the purpose of the Statement is to identify relationships, clarify principles, and 
establish closer ties between college and synod. 

The Board recommends that the following Statement be approved by synod: 

PROPOSED COVENANT BETWEEN LENOIR RHYNE COLLEGE 
AND THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Preamble 

The Church's involvement in higher education is vital to its own life and 
mission and provides a most effective arena for ministry to the world and the 
culture of which the Church and College are a part. Therefore this Synod and 
College covenant together their mutual support and acknowledge their inter- 
dependence in the cause of promoting Christian faith and life in the context of 
the educational enterprise. In so doing, both Synod and College reaffirm their 
fundamental commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord, and their desire to see Christ- 
ian insights and perspectives reflected in all educational programs of the Church 
and its College. 

The College will be true to its calling as it adopts and fulfills standards of 
excellence which apply to all institutions of higher education. It will be mindful 
of the unity of all truth, the need for an integrating factor in learning, and the 
necessity for freedom in the continuing quest for truth. Excellence and truth 
are derived from, and are fully realized only in living relationship to Jesus Christ, 
their perfect embodiment. 

The Synod in its role of sponsor, advocate and co-worker with the College, 
offers what it is uniquely equipped to give, namely, its continuing concern, its 
supportive constituency, its prayers, a tradition of mutuality, a climate of true 
freedom in the pursuit of knowledge and the stewardship of on-going generat- 
ions directed toward the College's programs and aspirations. 

I. A statement of purpose of the College. 

Lenoir Rhyne College is operated by the North Carolina Synod of the Luth- 
eran Church in America through a state-chartered corporation whose trustees 
are elected by the Synod. This is done to make available college-level educat- 
ional experiences that enhance one's understanding of Christian faith and its 
significance for living and learning. The College offers a liberal arts education 
designed to aid the student in developing to the fullest his unique personality 
and abilities, thus enhancing his potential contribution to society. In aiding the 
student in his quest to discover the true meaning of his humanity and in pre- 
paring him to lead an intelligently directed life, the College implements its 
commitment to provide education which seeks to relate persons to Jesus Christ 
and learning to Christian teaching. 

To fulfill this purpose, the College seeks to foster and sustain a com- 
munity in which: 

(1) every effort is made to free the mind of the student from ignorance and 

to make of it a critical and constructive instrument which enables the 
student to discover what "has been", what "is", and what "ought to be"; 

(2) each student is challenged to examine the religious and ethical dimensions 
of his life and to develop religious and ethical commitments that will pro- 
vide him with a basis for responsible decision making; 



218 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

(3) the student is helped to see the difference between making a living and 

living a life, and to consider occupational choices in the life of the Church 
and society that will aid him in discovering his vocation as a Christian; 

(4) the student is encouraged to develop a social awareness leading to respon- 
sible citizenship; 

(5) the ability of the student to express himself creatively through speaking, 

writing and the fine arts is cultivated, as is the ability to use leisure time 
appropriately. 

II. A statement of mutual acknowledgment of the Synod-College relationship. 

The North Carolina Synod in its constitution, Article Eight, paragraph 2, 
states: "This synod accepts and sustains a supporting relationship to Lenoir 
Rhyne College as a recognized church related college with a three-fold concern 
for its character as a Christian institution of learning, its academic excellence 
and its material welfare." 

Lenoir Rhyne College on its part acknowledges that the generous support, 
valuable guidance, and continuing concern of the Synod and its members for the 
College play a major role in the development of the school. 

The College seeks to provide the Synod with an institution of higher learning 
that will, through its program and its alumni, significantly enrich the life of 
the Church and society. 

In view of these mutual benefits Lenoir Rhyne College and the North Caro- 
lina Synod continue to seek ways of making the relationship that binds them 
one to the other more fruitful. 

III. Service and support to be provided each to the other. 

A. Lenoir Rhyne College offers to the Synod: 

(1) its continuing commitment to the Christian faith and its loyalty as an 
institution of the Church; 

(2) an instructional program meeting high standards of educational quality 

and serving both Church and society; 

(3) the services of faculty, administration, staff and students in programs 
designed to support the specific needs of the Synod, its congregations 
and ministers, viz. equipping persons for Church occupations and pro- 
viding continuing education for ordained and lay workers; 

(4) implementation of the Church's concern for society through the involve- 
ment of College personnel including students, faculty and staff, in 
community services; 

(51 its concern and supportive counsel for the quality of the life and pro- 
grams of ihe Church; 

(6) the use of College facilities for purposes of the Church. 

B. The North Carolina Synod offers Lenoir Rhyne College: 

(1) its continuing interest and support through a Board of Trustees com- 
prised of responsible persons who are committed to the strengthening of 
the College; 

(2) identification cs a College of the Synod, and, through the Synod as a 
College of the Lutheran Church in America having a supportive con- 
stituency in congregations in North Carolina; 

(3) contributions toward the operation of the College, as well as for capital 

improvements, endowments and special funds; 

(4) assistance in enrollment of qualified students who can benefit from the 

program of the College; 

(5) its concern and supportive counsel which call attention to needful 
changes in the life and programs of the College; 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 219 

(6) the use of synodical and congregational facilities for programs of the 

College. 

IV. Agreement on regular contact between the Synod and the College. 

The Constitution of the North Carolina Synod (Article VII, Section 3) pro- 
vides that the Board of Trustees of Lenoir Rhyne College "shall report annually 
to the regular conventions" of the Synod. The College acknowledges the appro- 
priateness of this and stands ready to provide such supplementary reports as 
may be desired. 

The Synod and College recognize the continuing need for discovering new 
and more effective means of interaction and communication. These might in- 
clude the interchange of materials and news releases, speakers and lectures, 
performing groups and the joint sponsorship of projects of mutual interest. 

This covenant shall be reviewed by both the Synod and the College at five 
year intervals.

2. LRC Development Board, rules of procedures for, amendments to 

(1968 Proceedings, p. 200; EBM, Dec. 1971, p. 6) 

The Board approved the recommendation of the Board of Trustees of Lenoir 
Rhyne College to amend the Rules of Procedure of the Development Board of 
the College as follows: 

(1) That the Rules of Procedure of the Development Board of Lenoir Rhyne 

College be revised to reduce the terms of office of the chairman and vice 
chairman to one year and to limit re-election to one succeeding term. 
Specifically, Article V, Section B, relating to the chairman, should be 
revised by deleting Sentence 2 ("He shall serve a term of two years".) and 
substituting "He shall serve a term of one year, and may be re-elected to 
one succeeding term." An identical revision should be made in Article V, 
Section 6, which relates to the vice chairman. 

(2) That Article IV, Section C, of the Rules of Procedure of the Development 

Board be amended to read: "Each member shall serve a term of three 

years. No member may serve more than two consecutive terms. Each term 

shall run concurrent with the appropriate fiscal year of Lenoir Rhyne 
College." 

(3) That Article IV of the Procedure of the Development Board be amended 

by adding the following section: 

Section E. No person may serve concurrently as a member of the Da- 
ve lopment Board and the Board of Trustees, except as authorized by 
Article IV, Section D.

220 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

L. NORTH CAROLINA LUTHERAN HOMES 

The Board expressed its concern over the CONCERN appeal as to the cost 
of care and the status of the appeal which led to the following actions: 

(1) That the Board express to the Board of Trustees of the N. C. Lutheran 

Homes that it would welcome any information in answering questions raised 
as to why there is no bigger difference between the rates of commercial 
nursing homes end the cost of care of the Homes, particularly, with refer- 
ence to the Albemarle Unit. 

" To this inquiry, both Pastor John A. Pless, Executive Director, and Ray A. 
Cline, secretary of the Board, replied with full informing letters. Added services 
at the Hemes include chapel services, personal counseling for residents, Christ- 
ian fellowship, staffing ministries, special resident care, selective menus, arts 
and crafts, and other plus services. The letters state that the cost of care at 
the Home is below that of other homes of the same nature. 

The Board expressed its concern and support of the CONCERN appeal in 
the following action: 

(2) That the Board express its sense of urgency in proceeding with collection 
of pledges and funds for the CONCERN appeal during the remaining time 
alloted to it in order to expedite the plans for construction of the Salisbury 
unit at the earliest possible date. 

The Board approved pursuing application for a possible grant from Hill- 
Burton funds for the Salisbury unit, end requested a total plan of financing of 
the Salisbury ambulatory-infirmary unit for review and action. 

At the May 7, 1972 board meeting, a preliminary plan of financing was 
submitted and received with the request that it be presented to the synod along 
with the recommendation of the Board of Trustees of N C. Lutheran Homes. 

M. LUTHERAN CHILDREN'S HOME 

1. Children's Heme, types of relationships to 

(EBM, Sept. 1971, pp. 9-10) 

It was reported that the South Carolina and Southeastern Synods had taken 
action at their 1971 conventions to start proceedings to withdraw from the 
ownership and operation of the Lutheron Children's Home, Salem, Virginia, 
according to the Procedures for a Synod's Withdrawal from a Jointly owned 
Institution (1963 Pro., pp. 191-194). This would reduce the territory that has 
been idsntified with the Heme by much more than half and the membership 
of the supporting churches by some 40%, leaving the Virginia and North Caro- 
lina Synods as the remaining owning and supporting synods. 

The proposal by the Heme's special committee suggests two types of relat- 
full participation in the ownership, control, and support of the Home with an 

ionship as follows: 

Supporting relationship — these synods would continue, as at present, in 
agreed number of board members and an annual division of budget support of 
the Home as its needs are demonstrated. 

Sustaining refationshio — these synods would participate in a more limited 
way in the affairs of the Home in minimum board memberships, and a limited 
budgetary support by a sustaining synod would be negotiated each year taking 
into account the financial position of the synod and the needs of the Home. 

In view of the alternate plan, the Regional Consultation to study such mat- 
ters is asking the Executive Board of each synod to express itself on the matter 
and to give its counsel as to whether the alternate plan is practical. 

The Board expressed its feeling that there should be no objection on our 
part of the two synods proposing to withdraw and seeking some other arrange- 
ment more practical for their respective needs. 

The motion was adopted: 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 22± 

That if the South Carolina and Southeastern Synods wish to withdraw that 
they follow the procedures which have been set up for a synod withdrawing from 
a jointly owned institution (EBM, March 1963, pp. 7-11; 1963 Pro., pp. 
191-194). 

It was further approved: 

That the Social Ministry Committee of the synod be requested to study the 

matter of our future relationship to the Children's Home in view of the possible 

withdrawal of the two above named synods, and report back to the Executive 
Board at a later date.

reported that the Loyalty Fund had dropped off, leaving the college at a finan- 
cial disadvantage.

(EBM, Sept. 1971, p. 16)

projects, the Board considered the project at Holy Communion, Banner Elk, 
consisting of the development of a community building for crafts, recreation, 
and fellowship, to be built on the property cf Holy Communion Church and made 
a part of its program to the community, as being worthy of its consideration and 
support.

leaders on district and congregational levels were outlined in detail. The pro- 
gram calls for six leaders fiom each district on each of the six age levels of

for the care of the Flat Rock cemetery since the cutting of the timber and 
requesting that a syncd representative meet with a group of interested persons

realized from the sale of timber on properties as a trust fund for the mainten- 
ance of cemeteries owned by the synod.

assume responsibility for the maintenance of the Flat Rock Cemetery, the cost 
to be paid by the synod, and that Chairmen Ritchie of the property committee 
be asked to act on behalf of the Board to implement the procedures. 

It was approved that the Executive Board through its legal committee seek 
to get titles for abandoned church properties.

(EBM, December 1971, p. 12; 1966 Pro., p. 185) 

In view of synod's policy of trading cars every two years or at 50,000 miles, 
whichever comes first, the Board approved that synod's car driven by President 
Whittecar be traded, and the bid of $1,700 from a local Salisbury firm was 
accepted. 

5. Kings Mountain Property, sale of 

(EBM, March 1971, p. 16; May 1971, p. 7; Sept. 1971, p. 16; Dec. 1971, 
pp. 12, 14) 

The Board authorized the sale of approximately nine acres of the Kings 
Mountain property consisting of 11.48 acres, which was given to the synod by 
Mr. Aubrey Mauney of Kings Mountain several years ago. The property was 
sold to a development firm for a price of $40,000, designated as Campus funds 
for Holy Trinity, Chapel Hill. The remaining property is being negotiated with 
Mr. Mauney, who has offered to buy the property, the proceeds to go to Holy 
Trinity, Chapel Hill, for campus ministry. 

The Board authorized that a resolution of appreciation be sent to Mr. Mauney 
for his gift. The following resolution was conveyed to Mr. Mauney: 

"The Executive Board of the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church 
in America hereby acknowledges with gratitude the beneficence of Mr. Aubrey 
Mauney, a member of St. Matthew's Church, Kings Mountain, North Carolina, 
in providing special gifts totaling $55,000 to assist Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 
of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the erection of a parish education building 
and campus ministry center. 

For more than 25 years, Holy Trinity Church has been a point of special 
interest on the part of the North Carolina Synod, its congregations and its 
members, in order to provide an evangelical Lutheran witness in the university 
community in Chapel Hill. The congregation has grown in its ministry and has 
touched the lives of thousands of persons related to the campus and the com- 
munity. It is one of the congregations which shares in the fruits of the synod's 
"CGmpus" program to provide facilities for the campus ministry. 

Over the years Mr. Aubrey Mauney has been a strong supporter of the 
ministry performed through Holy Trinity Church and a leader in the promotion 
of interest in its support. The Executive Board rejoices in his good works end 
commends his example to others that they, too, might share in the ministry to 
this vital center of learning."

Phanuels Church had never been deeded to Mt. Moriah Lutheran Church which 
has no clear title to this property. Since the North Carolina Synod, LCA, is the

be served to all parties concerned that it is the intent of the Board under the 
rules of the constitution (Article XI, Section III, Item 4, p. 17) to declare the 
congregation defunct, and that the Legal Committee report back to the Board

WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary

tween the college and the synod, and presented the Board's recommendation 
(2) that the proposed covenant be adopted. ADOPTED. 

President Whittecar informed the convention that the activities and actions 
of the Executive Board reported to the convention are under the review of the 
convention and opened the Report for discussion and questions. 

Recommendation 1 (p. 223) of the Executive Board was then moved. 

Budget — Chairman Lloyd Bollinger of the committee on Budget and Fi- 
nance presented the proposed 1973 budget (p. 223), section by section. He 
said that the LCA apportionment would be finalized as soon as that amount 
is determined. 



230 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Under Section 4, Pastor Richard Rhyne moved an amendment to strike line 
27, Delegates Travel Expenses. Dr. Whittecar ruled this out of order as it is 
in conflict with the by-laws of the church which provide for the payment of 
delegates' travel expenses to the synod convention. 

It was pointed out that Line 34, Pastors' Retreats, is a new item of the 
budget. 

An amendment was moved to add a new item (25a) under 3. Committee 
Expenses to read: Environmental Concerns, $1,200. ADOPTED. 

In answer to Pastor George Moore's question for clarification, President 
Whittecar replied that all items in synod's part of the budget will get the 
same trectment according to the ratio of division. 

Pastor Ernest Ridenhour reopened item 17, "Sustentation program, Pastor's 

Safary", in view of the action of the convention raising the minimum base 
salary for pastors and moved to amend by raising the amount from $30,000 to 
$40,000. ADOPTED. 

In answer to Pastor Carl Ritchie's question regarding item 31, Regional 
Secretary Robert Walker replied that the amount set for the committee on 
Campus Ministry is determined by individual requests from Campus churches 
and pastors. 

Mr. David Wright of Greensboro was recognized and called the convention's 
attention to a moral obligation accompanying an affirmative vote for the budget 
on the part of all congregations and pastors. 

The totals were amended to read: 

Total apportioned and other income for 1973 $1,730,128 

Total Expenses of Committees 96,782 

Total Part B — for Synod 917,530 

Total Parts A & B 1,730,128 

The proposed budget (Recommendation (1)) was put to a vote. ADOPTED. 

Pastor Douglas Fritz reminded the convention that the adoption of the 
budget was not for the majority but for all congregations and pastors of the 
synod, and urged a wholehearted and enthusiastic support of the budget. 

Pastor Harry Robinson, who had served a notice of presenting a motion 
earlier in the budget discussion, moved the following: 

That a special committee be appointed by the synod president to make an 
in-depth self study of the budget and budget items to re-evaluate the total 
ministry of the N. C. Synod, and report to the Executive Board. 

Mr. Joe Bockout informed the convention that there is already a long range 
planning committee to study such matters. 

President Whittecar said that in view of the budget development process, 
including consultations with representatives of the church, the motion was in 
order. 

The motion made by Pastor Robinson was ADOPTED. 

Dr. Ernest Misenheimer was recognized to present Recommendation (5) of 
the Executive Board regarding formula for calculating 1973 congregational 
apportionment as follows: 

5. That in calculating 1973 apportionments the percentage of active con- 
firmed members of churches with less than 100 members in relation to synod's

President Whittecar ruled that the convention remain in session until all 
items of business were completed. 

Secretary Lyerly reported no memorials from congregations. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 231 

Special Resolution: (original resolution appears on p. 119) 

Chairman Paul Morgan of the committee on Reference and Counsel sub- 
mitted a revised edition of the "war" resolution, including amendments as 
follows: 

WHEREAS, war in any form is a result of human and national sin; and 

WHEREAS, our own nation is engaged in (a) an undeclared war in Southeast 
Asia; and 

WHEREAS, our moral responsibility as a nation is (radically called into 
question by) inseparable from our involvement in (the) this destructive conflict: 
(in Southeast Asia:) 

BE IT RESOLVED THAT the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church 
in America assembled in convention, expresses its (opposition to) concern over 
continued (involvement of our nation in the) war in Southeast Asia; (deplores) 
regrets the recent intensification of (our national involvement in) this conflict; 
(respectfully urges the President and the Congress of the United States to 
terminate our national involvement in the conflict before the end of 1972) 
wholeheartedly supports ail efforts by the President and Congress of the United 
States to free all American and Allied prisoners of war and to terminate our 
national involvement in this conflict at the earliest date that does not sacrifice 
our brothers in South Vietnam; and urges our national leaders to (do all possible) 
continue in their efforts to end the conflict in Southeast Asia. 

AND FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent 
to the President of the United States and to the members of the Congress from 
the state of North Carolina. 

Pastor Thomas Ridenhour moved adoption of the resolution as submitted 
by the committee on Reference and Counsel in its amended form. 

Pastor Robert Beard moved to table the resolution, and submitted his reason 
for making the motion. He said that the enemy interprets such actions as an 
encouragement to continue the war. 

President Whittecar ruled that the motion is not debatable and that a 
simple majority rules, and proceeded to put the motion to table before the 
convention. Upon request, he called for a division of the house — 225 for, 
76 against. The motion to table prevailed. 

Mr. David Wright, lay delegate from First, Greensboro, proposed the reso- 
lution above which Was tabled with the following amendments: express its 
opposition to instead of "its concern over", and to delete the word "whole- 
heartedly". 

The President ruled the resolution out of order on the basis that it was 
substantially the same as the resolution to table. 

Mr. Wright appealed the decision of the chair on the basis that his reso- 
lution would encourage the President and Congress to terminate the hostilities 
in Southeast Asia, a different reason from that given by Pastor Beard. 

President Whittecar called for a vote from the convention. 

167 sustained the chair, 133 did not sustain the chair. 

The convention through a majority vote sustained the decision of the chair. 

Pastor Roy Setzer asked for the privilege of the floor. He said that regard- 
less of the Tightness or wrongness of the war that our returning servicemen are 
deserving of honor and respect, of appreciation and recognition for serving 
their country. 

President Whittecar added that this was worthy of notation. 

Gathering up what he felt to be the feelings of the convention, Pastor 
Frank Davis suggested that a day of prayer be designated for the President of 
the United States and those in high positions of responsible leadership. 



232 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

President Whittecar suggested that the matter which he deemed pertinent 
be referred to the committee on Reference and Counsel. 

Pastor John Cobb expressed his appreciation for the chaplain's prayer at 
the Wednesday morning session and suggested that the Committee on Reference 
and Counsel request that the prayer be printed along with other materials in 
the convention summary. The President referred Dr. Cobb to the Committee 
on Reference and Counsel. 

Pastor Wayne Wood asked for permission to introduce a resolution of a 
different intent. The President ruled that any such resolution is to be brought 
to the convention through the committee on Reference and Counsel. 

Pastors Rus Carter and Harry Robinson voiced their opposition to the fact 
that the convention failed to come to grips with the most burning issue of the 
day. 

Pastor John Yost, Jr. was granted a personal privilege. He reminded the 
convention that it is experiencing a very deep division that is present in the 
country today with good and honest men on both sides of the question, and 
that it is difficult for the church to speak on this subject with such limited 
facts at hand. He encouraged convention delegates to ask for divine guidance 
upon ecch one of us and those who are responsible for this terrible conflict, 
and to use available avenues to express his own conscience in the matter. 

Conduct of Elections: Chairman Harvey Blume of the Elections Committee 
reported the following elections on the fourth ballot: 

Executive Board: Clerical — William F. Milholland (E), term expiring 1975; 
Lay — Mrs. Jeff Norris, at large, term expiring 1973. 
This completed the convention elections. 

AUDITS 

The report of the committee on Audit was presented by Mr. W. A. Kluttz, 
chairman. The report follows: 

The Audit Committee met Tuesday night, May 2, 1972. The report was 
adopted and submitted by W. A. Kluttz, Chairman. 

The committee examined the Auditor's report of: 

North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, the Michael 
Peeler Fund, Home Mission Foundation and the following institutions: 

Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary — page 1 1 1 (BR) 

N. C. Lutheran Homes, Inc. 

(a) Hickory Unit 

(b) Albemarle Unit 
N. C. Lutheran 

N. C. Synod Retreat Center 
Lutheridge, Inc. 

The Lutheran Children's Home of the South 
Lenoir Rhyne College 
The college fiscal year is June 30. 

The accountants report for the year ended June 30, 1971 appears in the 
Synod bulletin at pages 115-122. 
We recommend: 

(a) That the auditor's opinion for each institution be printed in the min- 
utes of synod. 

(b) That the complete audit report for each institution be placed in the 
archives of synod. 

The committee notes the following: 

1. That the certificate makes an exception in the cases of Hickory Luth- 
eran Homes and the Albemarle Lutheran Homes: 

Viz. — "The examination of receipts and donations, which because of their 
nature are not susceptible to complete check". 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 233 

The Certified Pubic Accountant should make his recommendation to synod 
as to why this condition exists and why it cannot be improved. 

2. That the certificate relates in the case of the Lutheran Children's Home 
of the South that "Our examination was made in accordance with generally 
accepted standards, and included such tests of the accounting and such other 
auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances, except 
that outside confirmation was not attempted". 

There were the following contributions in the income statement: 

Synod Treasurer $129,707.66 

Direct 9,754.70 

Special Christmas 21,234.55 

There should be no difficulty in getting confirmation from synod. No recom- 
mendation is made by the C.P.A. firm as to what records should be maintained 
to be able to confirm these contributions. 

3. The Certificate of the C.P.A. firm making the audit for the North 
Carolina Synod makes no reference to the assets owned by synod. 

The Constitution provides: 

G-5 "It (Audit Committee) shall in collaboration with the office of Treas- 
urer of Synod determine what assets are owned by the Synod and keep said 
list up to date." 

This Committee feels that it is the Treasurer's office that should accum- 
ulate this information, and report to synod. So far as we can ascertain the last 
time this was attempted was 1963. 

Recommendations (a) and (b) were ADOPTED. 

The report includes observations and suggestions of the committee regarding 
the verification of contributions of certain institutions specified in the report. 

Dr. Leonard Moretz asked for clarification of intent, and thought it advis- 
able to be specific in giving instructions to the auditor as to the types of con- 
tributions the committee wanted verified. 

Chairman Kluttz replied that the records should be so set up that the 
contributions can be verified, or if records are not adequate, the auditor should 
so state in his opinion. 

Pastor Frank Perry moved — 

That the secretary of synod be directed to refer the observations and re- 
quests of the committee to the appropriate institution and that the Executive 
Board be directed to follow through. ADOPTED. 

Investments 

The committee in cooperation with the synodical treasury invests funds which 
are available in certificates of deposits and/or savings accounts at the rate 
most favorable at the time. During 1971 it appears the following funds earned 
the amount listed: 

CAMPUS $2,547.00 

Camp Com. — Long Range Program 895.49 

Revolving Loan Fund 82.05 

Film Library Fund 20.36 

Option Account 163.81 

*Richland Cemetery Fund 127.60 

"(This fund is used for the upkeep of the 
cemetery at Liberty.) 
Few funds come to the synodical treasury that are not designated for some 
specific purpose and the indefinite period of time the funds are available limits 
the field of investments. 

GLENN E. KETNER, D.5.C., Chairman PAUL FiSHER, Secretary 

C. MILLER SIGMON O. LEONARD MORETZ, LL.D. 

WALLACE GEE CHARLES S. HEILIG, Ex-Officio 

President Whittecar called attention to the report. There being no questions, 
the report was ordered closed. 



234 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Michael Peeler Fund 

The Trustees present herewith g consolidated auditor's report and certificate, 
which shows that $50,000.00 was paid over to synod and a small sum held in 
reserve. A detailed auditor's report has been turned over to synod and checked 
by the Committee on Audits. The Trustees have watched the investments closely 
and taken every advantage of opportunities to produce income. No one can 
predict what effect the "freeze" will have on interest and dividends during ihe 
current year. Every effort will be made to earn a like sum for the synod during 
the current year.

Luthern Church in America 
Salisbury, North Carolina 

We have made an examination of the books and records of the Treasurer 
of The Michael Peeler Fund, Salisbury, North Carolina, for the year ended 
December 31, 1971. Our examination was made in accordance with generally 
accepted auditing standards and included such auditing procedures as we con- 
sidered necessary. 

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet and statement of cash 
receipts and disbursements present fairly the financial position of The Michael 
Peeler Fund, Salisbury, North Carolina, at December 31, 1971, and the results 
of its operations for the year in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

1 .b. In connection with the committee's responsibility for finding fields for 
the establishment of new mission congregations, the committee shall inform all 
the congregations within and adjacent to an area under constrution and before 
any properties are purchased or type of ministry is formulated, confidential 
conversations with the pastors of the concerned congregations shall be held. 

Pastor Earl Townsend spoke in support of the by-law amendment. 

Pastor J. A. Harbinson asked for clarification of the area included. 

President Whittecar said that there is no mile limitation but that the area 
would be interpreted by the president and the regional secretary of the Board 
of American Missions. 

The by-law amendment was put to a vote. ADOPTED. 

Reference and Counsel — Pastor Paul Morgan, chairman of the commit- 
tee, reported as follows: 

In view of the fact that we all seem to be in agreement with the feeling 
that promoted the resolution opposing our continuance with the Viet Nam War, 
we propose that we designate a particular time for prayer in our churches 
beseeching the help and guidance of Almighty God for our President and our 
nation in this critical time, beseeching God to forgive us of the materializing 
and demoralizing tendencies that have brought us to this critical situation. 

The committee recommends the adoption of this resolution and that ths 
President of Synod be authorized to set said date and notify the congregations 
of synod. 

Mr. David Wright proposed an amendment to preface the resolution to be 
presented after he had formulated it properly. 

Action was postponed on this resolution. 

Pastor John Yost served notice of a substitute preface. 

The committee went on to other items. 

2. The committee recommends that consideration not be given to a res- 
olution submitted by Pastor Wayne Wood. ADOPTED. 



236 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Pastor Wood did not wish to appeal in view of that which may be forth- 
coming in an amended preface to the resolution in item 1. 

3. The committee recommends authorization of the suggestion by Pastor 
John Cobb that the chaplain's prayer opening the Wednesday morning meeting 
be printed in the convention summary. 

Pastor John Barringer moved an amendment by adding: 
"And that a copy of the prayer of the Chaplain used at the morning de- 
votions of this convention on Wednesday, May 10, 1972, be sent to the Pres- 
ident of the United States as an indication of our concern for the momentous 
decisions which he must make in these troubled days." ADOPTED. 
Item 3 was ADOPTED AS AMENDED. 

4. Add to Article 5, Section 1, as adopted in 1972: 

"With the expiration of terms of present members of the Executive Board 
a congregation may have only one (1) member on said Board." 

Signatures — Everette E. Home, Clyde Misenheimer, J. M. Fry, Claude V. 
Deal, John R. Nagle, Mrs. R. G. Heilig, Mrs. H. Fred Rudisill, T. K. Beaver, 
L. E Yount, James E. Reinhardt, Robert Q. Beard, K. Y. Huddle, Mrs. Paul S. 
Campbell, M. R. Farris, W. C. Davis, James F. Shealy, Hazel B. Trexler. 

The Committee recommends that this reading be considered the official 
first reading and that the proposed amendment be submitted to the 1973 con- 
vention for consideration. 

Chairman Morgan stated that the committee was not unanimous in this 
reccmmendation but felt that it should be brought to the synod for consideration. 
Action or. Item 1 (Continued) — 

Mr. Wright yielded to Dr. John Yost, who then presented on amendment 
to the preface of the resolution as follows: 

"WHEREAS in this convention we are deeply mindful of the conflict in 
Viet Nam and the loss of life there; and 

"WHEREAS we are conscious that the divisions that are so evident in our 
nation at this time are also present in the church with men of God holding 
different convictions to the solution and resolvement; 

"WE PRAY that God will not forsake us nor any of his children in our 
disunity but, in s>pite of our inability to offer a solution, to let His will be 
accomplished and the day of peace and justice for all men be hastened." 

We propose to designate a particular time for prayer in our churches be- 
seeching the help and guidance of Almighty God for our President and our 
nation in this critical time, beseeching God to forgive us of the materializing 
and demoralizing tendencies that have brought us to this critical situation, and 
that the 

"President of Synod be authorized to set said date and notify the congre- 
gations of synod." 

Pastor John Barringer spoke of the importance of daily prayer and sug- 
gested that on the next Lord's Day we include special prayers to this effect, 
effect. 

Acting on this suggestion, President Whittecar said that he would set 
Sundoy, May 14, 1972 (the next Lord's Day following the convention) as the 
day of prayer in case the resolution was adopted. 

Dr. Voigt Cromer mode an amendment substituting the word "offer" for 
the word "reach" in the prefcce above, since the words "to reach a solution" 
implies being responsible for making a decision. ADOPTED. 

Pastor Terry Agner served notice that if the resolution failed, he would 
move to take from the table the resolution on the Viet Nam War and amend 
it to read in its original form. 

Pcstor Yount moved the previous question. ADOPTED. 

The resolution in its amended form was put to the convention. ADOPTED. 

' President Whittecar designated the next Lord's Day, Sunday, May 14, 1972, 
as a special day of prayer in the congregations of synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 237 

It was the consensus that this resolution be printed in the convention 
summary. 

RESOLUTIONS 

Dr. Morgan presented the following resolutions: 

1 . That the gratitude of synod be appropriately expressed to the pastors 
and people of congregations in Durham and Chapel Hill for their careful plan- 
ning and execution of those plans as hosts for the Eleventh Convention of the 
North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America. 

2. That the Secretary of the Executive Board communicate the appreci- 
ation of delegates and visitors to the Concord High School Advanced Chorus 
and its director, Mr. Gary Shive, for their musical inspiration as a prelude to 
and part of the Convention's Eucharistic celebration, and to the choir of the 
Lutheran Church of the Abiding Saviour and its director, Mr. Roland Cardwell, 
for their presentation at the convention banquet. 

3. That thanks be extended to the Rev. Dr. Carl Thomas for his fresh and 
candid presentations about the status of the LCA, and for his sobering, yet 
hopeful challenge to us to be God's people in God's world. 

4. That appreciation be extended to our Chaplain, the Rev. Donald Woolly, 
for his spiritual reminders of the place of the scriptures in our corporate life. 

5. That the convention hereby express its gratitude to our synodical officers 
and staff for their diligence in support of the proceedings, and to the repre- 
sentatives of all institutions, boards, and agencies of the church for their 
valuable leadership in these ministries. 

ADOPTED.

Bulletin of Reports 

(Revised June, 1973) 



54 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Report of the President 

Fathers and Brethren in Christ Jesus: 

"Urace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus 
Christ." 

This convention of synod marks the completion of more than ten years of 
our lite as part of the Lutneran Church in America and two five-year terms of 
my service as President. Inis has been a decade ot growth in membership, 
expansion of progrGm, strengthening of the ties that bind us together as the 
Church, and broadening influence in the state and communities ot North Caro- 
lina. In order that we might get a broad view of the things that have taken 
place among us during this period, I give you a summary of the decade from 
19o3 to 1*72. 

The early part of this period was marked by adjustments by congregations 
and ministers alike to the organizational structure of the Lutheran Church in 
America. This meant adoption of new constitutions by ali congregations, which 
was accomplished in due time and in good ordsr. 1 he process of considering 
and adopting revised constitutions mode every congregation aware that we are 
part of a new church structure, and it served to help unify our life in the* North 
Carolina Synod. As we have lived within the polity of the church, we have 
found a solidarity with one another in matters that call for unity and a free- 
dom to adjust to new and individual patterns in points of matters where con- 
formity is not required. 

PERIOD OF GROWTH 

On January 1, 1963 we had 192 congregations in the synod. We now have 
205. There have been 17 mission congregations added to the roil, and one 
older congregation was restored. One was dissolved, one merged with a neigh- 
boring congregation, and three were declared defunct. 

In 1963 we had 70,316 baptized members in our congregations; now we 
have 77,910, a gain of 7,594, or 10.8 per cent. 

To be sure, this was not a large increase either in numbers or in percentage, 
but still it represents a gain during a decade in which the general trend in 
church membership in America was downward. 

In active confirmed membership we gained from 43,851 to 45,708. There 
were 232 ministers on the roll as we started the decade. We added 95 by 
ordination, three by restoration to the roll and 100 by transfer from other 
synods. We lost 19 by death and 13 by resignation. One was dropped from 
the roll, while 122 transferred to other synods. 

The trend that had been started many years earlier of separating multiple- 
congregation parishes to form single congregation parishes ground to a halt. 
We now have only one two-congregation parish, St. Luke-Salem, Lincolnton, 
and Salem Church is also our last "union" church, with a Lutheran and a 
United Church congregation sharing ownership and use of one building. 

EXPANSION OF PROGRAMS 

The decade was characterized by advancement on a number of fronts. In 
the field of social ministry we nourished and expanded the North Carolina 
Lutheran Hemes which had opened its doors in October, 1962. Two additions 
were made to increase the capacity of the Hickory Unit from its original 48 
to 84 persons. The building has been improved and land holdings in the ad- 
jacent area increased. The Concern appeal has provided more than $1 million 
for expansion of the Home's facilities. The Albemarle unit housing 54 persons 
for nursing care has been established and the Board of Trustees is poised to 
begin construction on the third unit at Salisbury. Assets of the Home now 
measure upwards of two and one-half million dollars. 

The Institutional chaplaincy was established in 1965 to minister to Lutheran 
patients, and others, in the complex of hospitals and other institutions in the 
Durham, Chapel Hill, Butner and Raleigh area with the Rev. J. White Iddings, 
D.D., as the chaplain. This ministry is now shared with a Lutheran Church 
Missouri synod chaplain. The synod has maintained its participation in the 
Lutheran Children's Home of the South. Although it withdrew in 1965 from 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 55 



ownership and operation of Lowman Home in South Carolina, it continues to 
support the home on behalf of individuals who are residents there. 

In 1970 the synod entered into a ministry in areas of Justice and Social 
Change. Task Forces on Family Living and Environmental concerns have pointed 
up responsibilities, skills and understanding of two other areas of social concern. 

Other aspects of parish life have received close attention. Our committee on 
Parish Education has developed a widespread corps of leaders to assist congre- 
gational workers in increasing their skills for teaching and general leadership. 
The new L.C.A. curriculum materials were Introduced in 1964 and have been 
widely used in our congregations. 

Programming for young people has included development of the youth min- 
istry concept, the separation of confirmation and first communion with com- 
muning of children at the 5th and 6th grade levels, and the use of new 
materials in preparation for confirmation. Youth staffers have served in the 
synod for two years. 

Long Range Planning by the camp committee has led to establishment and 
use of the Kure Beach retreat center and the acquisition cf the 554 acre UpDer 
Cape Fear River Camp site near Sanford. A director of Out-Door Ministries has 
been called to lead in not only development of this camD, but also the use of 
out-door facilities for worship and Christian growth in the congregations. 

Campus Ministry has received strong attention. The CAMPUS program of 
1965 brought $216,614 into the synod's hands for betterment of physical facil- 
ities for ministry in college and university communities. Even though a portion 
of this sum is still waiting for congregations or other agencies to undertake 
planned building programs, other portions of the Campus funds have added 
materially to the facilities for campus ministry purposes. 

Two regional coroorations for the imDlementation of the campus ministry 
have been formed, the Central North Carolina Ccmpus Ministry, which serves 
Greensboro, Durham and intermediate territory, with participation by the Amer- 
ican Lutheran Church end the L.C.A. , and the Meck'enb'irg Lutheran Camous 
Ministry corporation, servinq Meck'enburq county and having A.L.C. and Mis- 
souri synod participation along with L.C.A. 

Three major capital fund campaigns have b<=en conducted by the synod or 
its institutions dur'na this 10-year period: the "Fund for Proare^s" for Lenoir 
Rhvne College, 1963-1966; the "Campus" camonign, 196^-19*9; and the 
"Concern" apoeal for North Carolina Lutheran Homes, 1969-1972. Toqether, 
these have brought in special gifts of over two-and-n-hnlf million dollars for 
capital purposes above and beyond the regular contributions for the program 
budoets of the church. 

The response of the members of the congregations in contrib"tions during 
this decade refect the strona ouidance and motivation orov ; d°d by the stew- 
ardship comm'ttee, together with ministers and l^v lenders. Total contributions 
for all purposes in 1963 were $4,629,273; in 1972, $8,096,700. This has be°n 
a decade of unprecedented increases not onlv in costs of living, but also in 
wages, profits, aeneral income, and also contributions. 

All-in-all this has been a decade of growth in numbers and in the breadth 
and effectiveness of our Christian witness. We have grown closer together in 
our purposes and our programs. We have gained broader visions of our resDon- 
sibilities and opportunities as people of God and have moved to equip ourselves 
better for our tasks. I am arateful for the privi'ege of sharing this ministry and 
in having had a part in shaping the history of these ten years. 

CHANGING PATTERNS 

Changing worship patterns have been seen during the decade. The demand 
generally has been for meaningful worship., and this has led experimentation 
and introduction of new forms o f liturgy. We have written and sung new songs, 
we have used brass and stringed instruments, we have received the sacrament 
of the Lord's Supper in informal settings as well as with new liturgies provided 
by the Inter-Lutheran Commission on Worship. New styles of clergy and choir 
vestments have appeared; banners have found a place in processions and on 
church walls. 

This decade has also been characterized as a period of increasing insecurity 
on the part of the ministry. The wide demands made in modern church life on 
the time and skills of pastors, the rising expectations that lay persons have of 



56 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



their ministries, and increased costs of living have heightened the personal con- 
cerns of ministers. In order to meet this development, counseling services have 
been provided for pastors and their families through the President's office, career 
guidance centers have been established in various places and have been made 
available to ministers in the synod, spiritual retreats for ministers have been 
made annual events, continuing education opportunities have been expanded, 
and a program for supplementing the salaries of ministers and raising levels of 
pastor's support at minimum levels has been established. "Tent-making" min- 
istries have been established in some instances. 

During the course of this decade, steps were taken to strengthen the hands 
of the President by certain additions to staff and revisions of staff responsibil- 
ities. We have also ccme into the need to adjust our procedures to new structure 
patterns in the church, especially as they are related to church-wide agencies. 
At present we are involved in making several such adjustments. 

STAFF MINISTRIES 

This report is the report not only of the President but also of his staff. I 
have been grateful for the continued support in a multitude of ways of the 
Rev. Ernest L. AiAisenhe : mer, D.D. and the Rev. Terry W. Agner, Administrative 
Assistants. Both of these men have been assigned to work in the field of 
parish services. Dr. Misenhe ; mer primarily with stewardship, evanqePsm and 
social ministries and Pastor Agner with parish education, youth ministry and 
ccmoing. He is also related to the committee on Church Vocations as secretary 
and is suDervisor of the Youth Staffers, Mary Ann Moller and David Fink. Dr. 
Misenheimer does the greater part of the work of counseling with congregations 
look-ng for oastors, serves as personnel officer and manager of the Church 
House. He has olso served as staff assistant to five task forces: Justice and 
Social Change, Fcmily Living, Love Compels Action appeal, Key '73, and Long 
Ranoe Planning. 

The Rev. David L. Mortin was added as a third Administrative Assistant 
beginning Seotember 15, 1972. He was also elected by the Executive Board as 
Secretary of th^ Synod. In view of his SDecial trainina in the area of pastoral 
counseling, he h°s been assigned as a counse'or to the ministers of the synod, 
an area in wh ; ch he has an increasing work-load. He is also assigned as staff 
m n n for the Cttious Ministry committee and the committee on Continuing 
Education for Ministers, as we'l as assianments that are his by reason of the 
office of secretory, Historical Work and PuMicitv and Publiontions. I am grate- 
ful for the fresh viaor he has brought to the President's office. 

A fourth Administrative Assistant has been authorized and is being souaht. 
This, I believe, should be a lay person, who, by reason of training or expprience 
in the field in business manaoement, can become a b"siness manaaer for the 
synod and who con lead us in the processes of Progrom-Project-Budget planning. 
Other assignments such as deve'oTnent of more effective lines of communi- 
cation between congregntiorts, and the synod and the over-all promotion of 
stewardship might be added. 

We had the services of the Rev. J. Wilford Lyerly, D.D., as secretary of 
the synod, or as part-time assistant to the new secretary, until the end of 1972. 
Dr. Lyerly had by then completed 20 years in the office of secretary, 10 as part- 
time secretary in the United Evcnqelical Lutheran synod of North Carolina and 
10 in the present synodical organization. I shore the gratitude that I know the 
who'e svnod bears toward Dr. Lyerly for his services to us all as secretary. 

This has also been another year of rich fellowship with Charles S. Helia, 
treasurer, whose oood snirit and reody helpfulness has added to the pleasure of 
working in the Ch"rch House. I am arateful for the continuinq service of each. 

The office staff has remained intact throughout the year, Mrs. Virginia 
Casey, secretary to the President and manager of the film library, who has 
served us nine years; Mrs. Jenny Roberts, secretary to the Spcretary of Synod 
and to Pastor Agner, who has served us nine years; Mrs. Caroline Hampton 
who has served as bo^k-keeoer in the office fo the Treasurer for eight years; 
and Mrs. Mildred Casper, who is secretary to Dr. Misenheimer, who has been 
with us one year. Mrs. Mildred Brown, our housekeeper, is the veteran employee 
of the synod having been with us 23 years. 

Late in February, 1973, Mrs. Ann Leonard took over the bookkeeping re- 
sponsibilities and Mrs. Hampton assumed duties as secretary to Pastor Agner. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 57 

Following are personal statements by Administrative Assistants: 
ERNEST L. MISENHEIMER, D.D. 

The year of 1972 has been one of great upsurge in Stewardship with the 
largest dollar increase in apportionment receipts over the previous year ever 
recorded; and in Evangelism with great activity in the congregations set off 
by the Key 73 thrust; and in Social Ministry with more and more projects on 
the congregational level designed to meet community needs. 

The greatest block of my time during the year has been given to Key 73 
planning on synod, district, congregational and ecumenical levels. I served as 
chairman of the planning committee for "A Day for Key '73" in Greensboro 
on September 1 1 sponsored by the N. C. Council of Churches. This event at- 
tracted 1,000 people. On the synod level it has been a joy to serve as coord- 
inator for the Key 73 Task Force in the training and sending out of "the 
seventy" to visit church councils and evangelism committees of N. C. Synod 
congregations. The seventy have "returned with joy" as did the New Testament 
70 in the days of old. These visits have created a good climate for Key 73 
on the congregational level and have encouraged congregations to tailor-make 
their evangelism plans according to their own needs and priorities. 

Counseling with congregations looking for pastors has claimed the second 
largest block of my schedule time. Our plan is to meet with the council and 
pulpit committee as soon as possible after the pastor resigns and to conduct an 
evaluation study with the grouo arranging program needs in order of priority, 
determining skills needed by the next pastor, describing the life style of the 
congregation, studying the community in which the congregation ministers, and 
setting some goals for long range planning. Since the last convention of synod 
I have counseled with 35 congregations seeking a pastor. 

Another block of time has been given to planning and imolementation of 
plans of the operational committees on Stewardship, Evangelism, and Social 
Ministry. These activities are described in the reports of these committees. I 
edit a monthly bulletin for these three area<s of concern which goes to seven 
persons in each congregation. The triennial Stewardshio, Evangelism, Social 
Ministry School at Lenoir Rhyne College last August which attracted over 400 
people was under my direction. 

A real achievement this year has been the organization of the Cabinet of 
Parish Services to coordinate the cporoach of committees to conaregations. Two 
meetings of the Cabinet have been held and it looks most promisinn as a coord- 
inating agency for the synod committees. Thirty-three services offered congre- 
gations by committees and synod staff have been identified. 

A fourth block of time is aiven to miscellaneous matters including personnel 
officer and manager of the church house, general duties as administrative as- 
sistant ass ; aned to me from time to time, providina service of scheduling auest 
preochers for congregations of svnod renuestina them, repres°nting synod at 
Sunday Services in congregations including instnllations, dedications, ground 
break'nas, anniversaries, etc., coordinator for 1972 pastors' retreats, and parti- 
cipant in the parish visits program. 

TERRY W. AGNER 

As Administrative Assistant to the President my staff assignments during 
1972-1973 have been substantially in those areas of concern which were mine 
as Secretary of Christian Education: Parish Education, Youth Ministry, Church 
Vocations, and Church Camping. With the establishment of the Cabinet for 
Parish Services I provide, in addition, staff liaison for the Committee on 
Worship. 

The year can broadly be summarized in one concept — leadership devel- 
opment. I have given high priority to providing staff support to the emphasis 
of the Committees on Parish Education and Youth Ministry in develoDing con- 
gregational teaching and Youth Ministry leadership. The reports of these com- 
mittees give some assessment of the scope and results of these endeavors. In 
Church Vocations the same kinds of needs which pastors have been expressing 
for a network of support and counseling have appeared among college and 
seminary students preparing for church vocations. I have viewed my work as 
secretary of this committee in terms of administrative support not only to the 
committee but to the students as well.

In the role of synod contact person with the Youth Staffer Project, I am 
happy to channel David Fink's report to the synod in the President's Report: 

"During the period, July, 1972, through July, 1973, as Youth Staffer my 
main objective has been to facilitate Youth Ministry in the congregations of 
the synod. I have tried to meet this objective directly by serving as a Youth 
Ministry enabler to individual congregations; and indirectly through cluster and 
district retreats and leadership labs, and by assisting the Synod Committee on 
Youth Ministry with their ministry events. 

"An example of how I have tried to implement Youth Ministry on the 
Cluster and District level is through a series of Youth-Adult Leadership Labs; 
where teams of 2 or 3 youth and one adult are trained for their "back-home" 
involvement in Youth Ministry. 

"Youth Ministry Consultation Teams also serve as Youth Ministry enablers 
in the Synod, and part of my responsibility as Youth Staffer has been to main- 
tain and support these Consultaiion Teams. This includes quarterly meetings 
and involving them in cluster and district events as leaders. 

"I've worked very closely with the Synod Committee on Youth Ministry in 
planning and implementing Youth Ministry events. My responsibility with the 
Youth Committee has included involvement with: Camping with the Retarded 
— as a counselor-participant; Synod Convo '73 (held in conjunction with the 
1973 Convention of the synod) — as coordinator; and Venture '73 (a leadership 
lab in 3 parts: Jr. High, Sr. High, and Post High) — as a staff person. 

"I will be eternally grateful to you, the people of the North Carolina Synod, 
for giving me the opportunity to share in service to our Risen Lord. 

Peace, Love and Joy, 
DAVE FINK 
Youth Staffer" 

A final aspect of the emphasis on Leadership Development i(s the smallest, 
but potentially the most significant. It is the tiny but emerging part I have had 
in consulting with congregations who are in the process of renewing themselves. 
It is exciting to witness the work of the Spirit. In this "year of Evangelism" 
persons are indeed discerning the movement of the Spirit and are being em- 
powered by Him. I am grateful to you, and those with whom I work, for having 
been given the opportunity to serve in this way. 

DAVID L. MARTIN 

September 15, 1972 was my first day on the job as Administrative Assistant 
to the President, after being nominated by Dr. Whittecar and approved by the 
Executive Board at its September 6-7 meeting. Along with this position, I was 
also elected Secretary of the Synod to which I will speak in a separate report. 
The dossier of this position includes a priority as counselor to pastors with 
further responsibilities in continuing education for pastors and Campus Ministry. 
The counseling aspects are varied in the areas of general support, specific support 
of pastors with particular needs, career guidance and development. 

While I cannot be specifically descriptive of my work as counselor to pastors, 
an overview may suffice. Much of my effort as counselor to pastors has been 
in getting to know pastors by individual and group contact. This has included 
an extensive schedule of retreafs, district meetings, support group meetings, 
associations of Lutheran pastors end smaller study groups. Numerous pastors 
have made contact with me in the areas of counseling needs. In my work as 
counselor to pastors I constantly emphasize my availability in that pastors have 
top priority in my scheduling. 

In preparation and continuing growth on the job, I have attended an in- 
tensive week experience in organizational development, numerous personal growth 
opportunities, a communications course and counseling support. 

In the area of continuing education, I refer you to the report of the com- 
mittee. In carrying out the aims of the committee, I have participated in the 
evaluation of Career Development and Planning programs, as well as assisted 
groups of pastors in assessing needs in continuing education. Part of my respon- 
sibilities in this area are to record and report trends in continuing education 
needs. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 59 

Two goals that I have set in the past months on the job have been: 

(1) to encourage pastors to become more open concerning their struggles 
and pains in the ministry in general; and 

(2) specifically to communicate my availability when needs for counseling 
a rise. 

The experience thus far has been very rewarding. I look forward to serving 
the pastors of our synod in their personal and educational needs.

SYNOD DELEGATION REPORT, LCA — DALLAS, 1972 

The 22-member N. C. Synod representation at the biennial LCA Convention 
at Dallas, Texas, June 30-July 6, included three alternates among the eleven 
lay delegates, besides ten pastors and Synod President Dr. George R. Whittecar, 
chairman of the group. Attendance at the fifteen business sessions, convention 
comrrumon, open forums and convention barbecue was about 99%. Thirteen 
delegates were accompanied by other members of their families. Several dove- 
tailed the convention with vacations. Eight delegates were parish pastors. Six 
lay delegates were child, brother, or wife of pastor, besides seminarian Michael 
Frye, interning in Dallas. 

Most of the delegation attended a pre-convention caucus at the Church 
House in June with explanation and discussion of some expected issues. Earlier, 
during the Durham synodical convention, an informal discussion had been held, 
besides convention opportunity for airing the Function and Structure Report. 
During the Dallas convention, one discussion caucus was held. 

Delegates involved in the agenda included: Dr. Paul Lutz as member of the 
nominating committee and chief author-presenter of the Board of Social Min- 
istry's Ecology statement (with a local TV appearance also); Wallace Jorgenson 
as chairman of the committee on President's Report; Dr. Raymond Bost as 
member of the Memorials Committee; and O. Leonard Moretz as member of 
the Reference and Counsel group. 

Synod memoers elected by the convention were Dr. Lutz, chosen to the 
management committee of the Division for Mission in North America which 
absorbs his former Social Ministry Board; and Cherryville's Mrs. W. E. (Judy 
Ford) Houser, chosen for the Division of Parish Service, which succeeds the 
Commission on Stewardship and Lutheran Laymen's Movement on which she 
had been serving appointively. A number of nominees or agency members from 
this comparatively small synod failed election or re-election, and some fell when 
their agencies of service or nominations were closed out in re-organization: Dr. 
George R. Whittecar,. Dr. Raymond Bost, Dr. John Yost Jr., Dr. B. S. Brown, 
Jr., Dr. Ernest L. Misenheimer, Dr. Carveth P. Mitchell, Prof. David Chou, Prof. 
Austin Shell, Joe Ridenhour, Tom Kadell, Pastor Albert Keck, Jr., Jeff Norris, 
O. Leonard Moretz and Stephen Misenheimer. 

Concurrent with the LCA Convention was a Youth Ccnvo which was active 
in discussion and influenced some convention decisions. North Carolina listed 
23, a very large number relatively, including Synod Administrative Assistant 
Terry W. Annpr, Youth Staffer M^ry Ann MoMer, Greensboro Community 
worker Joe Walker, and Pastors Don L. Safrit, Harvey Blume and Dick Rhyne. 
Altogether, slightly over 100 members of this synod attended some con- 
vention activity. About seventy took part in a synodical fellowship meal near 
the end of the convention. Several pastors preached in Dallas area churches 
during the convention. 

Durinq the convention, at one point eight members of the synodical dele- 
gation asked to be recorded in opposition when the body of the re-organiration 
amendments to the constitution were passed on first read'nn without sufficient 
consideration, prcbably a factor in the s"bsequent period of further consideration 
and opportunity for some amendments. Several delegates were disturbed because 
of the constant time pressure of the convention agenda. Slightly less then half 
the delegation was attending a convention for the first time with delegate 
status. 

Delegates were: 

The Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D., Chairman 

The Rev. Raymond M. Bost, D.D. 

The Rev. C. Marion Starr 

The Rev. John L. Yost, Jr., D.D. 

The Rev. Ernest L. Misenheimer, D.D. 

The Pev. George W. Shuford

Committee of District Deans 

The Committee of Deans consists of the following district deans: 

The Rev. James C. Stirewalt, Central 
The Rev. John D. Mauney, D.D., Eastern 
The Rev. Frank C. Perry, Th.M., Northern 
The Rev. W. Leo Smith, S.T.M., Northwestern 
The Rev. J. A. Harbinson, S.T.M., Soufnern 
The Rev. Jack E. Smith, S.T.M., Southwestern 
The president and secretary ot the synod are its chairman and secretary 
respectively. 

Two meetings were held during the interim, on November 21, 1972 at 
Saint John's Lutheran Church, Salisbury, and March 1, 1973 at Saint James 
Lutheran Church, Concord, both meetings held in conjunction with the meeting 
of the Cabinet of Parish Services. 

Constitutionally, the function of the committee is to advise and assist the 
president of synod in the discharge of his duties and to confer with him as to 
the needs of the church on the territory of the several districts; to review the 
ministerial roll annually and make appropriate recommendations to the synod 
regarding those ministers whose status is subject to reconsideration and action 
under the terms of the constitution and by-lcws of the church; and to determine 
the dates and programs of the meetings of he districts (Art. Seven, Section 2, 
item 2, 3, and 4). 

1. District meetings, plans for: 

The committee planned for the fall and spring district meetings. The fall 
meetings were planned to include communion, reports of the district officers, 
various reports including Key 73, the North Carolina Lutheran Homes CONCERN 
Appeal, and a presentation of the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary 
OUTREACH Appeal. Also, the Youth Staffer for 1972-73 and the new Assistant 
to the President were to be presented. Plans for the spring meetings were left 
up to the individual districts — some used the consultation format and one 
district planned a special study presentation (see reports of District Deans). 

2. Special Study, plans for: 

The Deans set a tentative date of Thursday, May 10, 1973 at 10:00 for 
a meeting to work and discuss in areas of conflict management to be held at 
the Synod House. 

3. Other matters: 

Throughout the year, the deans have expressed concern and prayer for the 
ministers and congregations of synod. Futher, concern was expressed for a more 
adequate system of communications throughout synod ;n regard to immediate 
news as was expressed after the unexpected death of a pastor. 

4. Roll of Ministers, review of: 

In compliance with the rule of the church which reads, "Continuance on the 
ministerial roll of a minister awaiting call shall be reviewed by the synod at 
each regular convention up to the permitted limit of three years. Extension of 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 69 



one year at a time shall require a majority vote." (LCA By-Laws, Section II, 
item 12). 

The committee reviewed the ministerial roll with reference to the status of 
ministers awaiting call. 

The committee recommends: 

That the following be continued on the roll as awaiting call: 

First Year — Bob Beaver, Gaither Blackwelder, George Keck, Henry R. Sink. 

Second Year — Thomas Renninger, Robert L. Young*. 

Third Year — David M. Rhoads. 

*(Due to an oversight, the name of Robert L. Young was not presented to 
the convention for approval as "awaiting call" second year. At the June meet- 
ing of the Executive Board, Robert L. Young was approved as "awaiting call" 
second year.) 

DAVID L. MARTIN, Secretary

The Spring meeting of the district was held Feb. 21, 1972, at Frieden's

which local pastor Vernon A. Frick welcomed the group and mentioned a few 
matters of interest from the congregation's long history. The group then divided 
into groups according to operational committees for the traditional consultations. 

The Cabinet met Sept. 12, 1972, in Burlington to plan the fall and spring 
meetings of the district. 

The Fall meeting was held Oct. 17, 1972, at Holy Trinity, Chapel Hill. 
Following opening devotions, reports from operational committees and a report 
on CONCERN, pastors and delegates were asked to write on a card what they 
considered to be the one greatest difficulty (or strength) in the relationship be- 
tween pastors and laymen in their congregations. (They had been askd to read 
an article on this subject from Event magazine prior to the meeting.) The body 
then divided into small groups end the cards were "shuffled" and divided be- 
tween the groups. In the plenary session following, a resolution was adopted 
asking the Executive Board of Synod to encourage and facilitate the establish- 
ment of small "pastoral relations" committees in congregations. 

During lunch Pastor Terry Agner brought greetings from the synod staff 
and introduced Pastor David L. Martin, new synod administrative assistant and 
Secretary of the Synod. Pastor Agner also introduced Southern Seminary's

Mission pastors of the district were invited to a meeting with the district 
representatives on the American Missions committee on Nov. 15, 1972, at the

SOUTHERN DISTRICT 

The members of the Southern District Cabinet (operational committee repre- 
sentatives) came together for a cabinet meeting on September 28, 1 972 at St. 
John's, Concord. It was reported that the resignation of Mr. Walter Drury of 
Calvary Church, Concord, southern district lay representative on Evangelism, had 
been accepted and that Mr. Jacob Carter of First Church, Albemarle, had sub- 
sequently accepted appointment to this position. (Since that date Mr. Carter 
found it necessary to relinquish this responsibility and Mr. Ray A. Cline of St. 
John's Church, Concord has been appointed as the southern district's lay repre- 
sentative on Evangelism). The cabinet gave full consideration to the scope of 
its area of responsibility in the overall ministry of the Church. Due to Mr. 
Harry Faggart's election to synod's Executive Board (May convention — 1972) 
it became necessary for him to resign his cabinet post as lay representative on 
American Missions. Mr. John K. Moore of St. Mark's, Charlotte, accepted 
appointment to this position. After giving careful consideration to their respective 
areas of concern, plans for the forthcoming district meeting were made. 

St. Paul's Church, Hamlet, was the scene of the Annual Meeting of the 
district held October 27, 1972. Presiding Minister for the opening Communion 
service was Dr. Ernest Misenheimer, synodical Administrative Assistant and 
Assistant to the President, with the district secretary — Rev. Donald L. Safrit, 
Sr. — and the host pastor — Rev. Ciyde P. Haas — participating. Preacher 
for the day was the District Decn. 

Following the service of worship the business session began with Dr. Misen- 
heimer bringing greetings to the district in the absence of President Whittecar. 
who was then in Japan on a world missions tour with other synodical presidents. 
The Rev. David Martin, synod's newest Administrative Assistant and Secretary, 
was introduced. He shared with us his expectations and hopes for this newly 
created position. After relating the fact that synod's new Youth Staffer — Mr. 
Dave Fink — was already busily at work with the youth of synod, Dr. Misen- 
heimer reminded the district of the five Task Forces at work in the synod: 
(1) Family Living; (2) Long Range Planning; (3) Justice and Social Change; 
(4) L.C.A. Appeal; and (5) Key '73. We were informed that the 1972 appor- 
tionment receipts were, at that time, $56,000.00 (or six and one-half percent) 
more than 1971 receipts. We were alerted to the Youth Ministry consultation 
teams and given information relating to their function. 

The Dean's report informed the district of the cabinet meetings, as well as 
district meetings, held last year and encouraged all churches to call upon dist- 
rict representatives when needed. Stating that he could find no good reason for 
the poor overall stewardship response to apportionment giving by the congre- 
gations of the southern district, the Dean further encouraged genuine commit- 
ment to Christ, The Head of The Church. The following new pastors were 
welcomed into the district and introduced: Charles Easley — First, Albemarle; 
Leonard Bolick — Calvary, Concord; Roy Trexler — Cold Water, Concord; and 
K. Y. Huddle — St. Martin's, Albemarle. Also introduced was Mr. Harold 
Blalock who is now serving as Director of Christian Education and Youth Work 
at First Church, Albemarle. The following pastors have moved from the southern 



72 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



district during the past year: Karl Park, Homer Fry, Robert Halvorsen, and J. 
Shelton Moose. Speaking for the CONCERN appeal was Executive Director, 
Rev. John Pless who encouraged congregations to "wind up unfinished business" 
the last two months of the campaign with a good response. He thanked the 
congregational representa + ives for their support of the North Carolina Lutheran 
Homes. All operational committees reported, sharing important information with 
the assembly, and opportunity for any new business was afforded just prior to 
adjournment for lunch which was to be sponsored by the Southern Seminary at 
Revel's Restaurant. 

Dr. H. George Anderson — seminary President — presented the forthcoming 
Seminary Appeal to the district by stating the dreams and expectations of this 
appeal and by outlining suggested procedures congregations might follow in the 
appeal campaign. Dr. Andersen's presence greatly enhanced the district meeting. 

The spring meeting of the southern district for 1973 was held at St. Mark's

Report of the Secretary 

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

September 15, 1972 was my first day as Secretary of Synod, being nomin- 
ated and elected by the Executive Board at the September 6-7 meeting to the 
dual position of an Administrative Assistant to the President and Secretary. 
The first months were spent in a general orientation to the wide variety of 
duties. Part of this training was a week-long seminar in Church Executive 
Management. I take this opportunity to thank the synod staff, the secretaries 
and the Rev. J. Wilford Lyerly, D.D., for their patience and willing assistance 
during this time of transition. A special debt of gratitude goes to Mrs. Jenny 
Roberts without whose help I could not perform my many duties. 

As Secretary of synod, I am the recording secretary of the Executive Board, 
the Committee of District Deans, and the Committee on Historical Work. I also 
serve as an ex-officio member of the Committee on Publications and Publicity, 
as well as serving on the Executive Board's sub-committee on conventions. Other 
duties related to the office of Secretary are statistician, necrologist, archivist and 
director of the news bureau. 

The following is descriptive of my work as Secretary: 
Minutes — 

1. Compiling and editing the 1973 Convention Bulletin and Minutes, eval- 
uation of the quantity of minutes needed by synod in 1973, and gathering bids 
from the printers. 

2. Preparing and distributing minutes of the Executive Board meetings and 
the preparation of the Executive Board report for Synod. 

3. Compiled and distributed minutes of the Committee of District Deans 
and the Committee on Historical Work. 

Functions — 

On-going functions of the office that I have fulfilled in the past few months 
are: the maintenance of an up-to-date roll of congregations and ministers; the 
issuance of certificates of transfer for ministers coming in and going our of 
Synod; the issue of calls to special service; the certification of appointments 
and elections; the communication of board and synodical actions, and attest all 
legal documents; conduct pre-convention registration; and, assist with the con- 
vention preparation. 

STATISTICS 

A parochial report has been received from every congregation of the North 
Carolina Synod. They have been gathered, checked, corrected where needed and 
sent off to the LCA offices to be translated and fed into computers. From the 
read-outs we have a numbering with totals on a broad spectrum of congregational 
life including membership, finances and parish education. While mere statistics 
are not the whole story, they are somewhat indicative of the life of the church. 
Placed into a total perspective of the mission of the church, they have a pro- 
found meaning. And, too, they provide data for use in much of the work of the 
church both locally and church wide. 

The 1972 statistics relotive to 1971 show both gains and losses as follows: 

Child Members — 2,126 pnins and 2,207 losses, includina 1,009 chid 
members confirmed, a loss of 428 reported as "other losses". The total child 
membership decreased from 18,818 to 18,737. 

Confirmed Members — 3,654 gains and 2,999 losses, a gain of 655. Total 
confirmed membership increased from 58,518 to 59,173. 

BaDtized Membership — 5,780 gains and 5,206 losses, a aain of 574 (1971 
gain was 171). Total baptized membership increased from 77,336 to 77,910. 

Active Roll of Confirmed Members — There is an increase from 45,582 to 
45,708, an increase of 126. In 1971 there was a loss of 687. 

Communing Membership — The total communing membership increased 
from 42,357 to 43,098, a gain of 741. 

Congregations — As of December 31, 1972, there were 205 active congre- 
gations on the roll of synod, two congregations having been declared defunct. 

Ministers — As of December 31, 1972, there were 273 ministers on the 
roll of synod. The breakdown is as follows: 190 parish pastors; 21 non-parish 
pastors (general workers and professors); 7 chaplains (4 institutional and 3

military); 3 missionaries; 47 retired; 4 awaiting call, and 1 applying for await- 
ing call. 

Parish Education — Sunday Church School enrollment dropped from 37,019 
to 35,838, a loss of 1,181. In other areas of parish education: 182 vacation 
church schco's were held with c pupil enrollment of 11,663, an increase of 
703 over last year. There were51 Weekday church schools with 2,053 pupils 
attending; a loss of 289 pupils. 3,833 pupils had taken catechetical instruction 
including 713 adults; 336 pupils were involved in Christian family programs; 
558 were involved in leadership education; end 731 pupils were involved in 
senior high and adult schools of religion. 

Finances — Total income amounted to $8,096,700, compared to $7,403,998 
for 1971, an increase of $692,802 for 1972. Of the $8,096,700, 53.4% was 
given to current operating expenses: 16.4°o apportioned benevolences; end 5% 
to other benevolences. Apportioned benevolence increased $101,612 over the 
previous year, and other benevolences were 6,527 over 1971. Total assets are 
$51,072,750. 

OBSERVATIONS 

1. Our Decline in Child Membership — The one area of statistical decline 
was in child membership which dropped from 18,818 to 18,737, a loss of 81. 
This loss reflects somewhat the declining birthrate increases in this country. 
However, there is a leveling off and this is reflected in comparison of our 1971 
decline of 329. These declines in the past are now effecting our parish edu- 
cation statistics as less children are moving into the lower age classes of our 
church schools. 

2. The High Rare of Mobility — As is characteristic of our society, our 
greatest gains and losses were in the category of transfer of members in and 
nut of the congregations of our synod. Of the 5,730 gains in total membership, 
3,053 were by transfer. Of our 5,206 total losses, 2,311 were by transfer. 

3. Concern for Realistic Statistics — Congregations are no longer carrying 
extra weight on the rolls. Since the merger this realism has shown through our 
statistics. There were 1,294 reported as "other losses" this year. This brings 
the synod total tc 13,148 "other losses" since 1962, or approximately 1,315 
"other losses" a year during the past ten years. Numbers are being placed on 
our inactive rolls; however, as the constitution reminds us, "they shall remcin 
within the continuing concern of the congregations and shall be given consci- 
entious pastoral care." 

4. The Trend May Be Reversing — During the past few years, we have 
noticed a decreasing membership in the churches across our land. With 655 
gains in confirmed membership, synod also
